The [h]  sound in English is quite difficult for us.

fr.wikibooks.org

Watch this ESL video. Another American teacher gives examples of words that use this sound at the beginning of the word.



So don't forget the [h] sound as in Happy Halloween !

However, there are a few exceptions :

heir / heiress (héritier/ère)

honour (honneur)

hour (heure)

honest (honnête)

honesty (honnêteté)

 

So how many [h] sounds are there in this sentence ?

 

On my honour, and with my hand on my heart, I have behaved honestly.

Well done Manon (8C) ! His name was Guy Fawkes.

He was a Catholic. On November 5th, 1605 he tried to blow up the Parliament in London and kill the King, James I, who was a Protestant.

Enjoy your half-term holiday !

Halloween (read previous article) or "All Hallow's Eve" in old English, is coming soon.


Halloween started in Ireland and Scotland. Then it went to North America with immigrants from those countries. And finally it came to France and Germany from the USA.

APPLE BOBBING

A favourite Halloween game is apple bobbing (watch video). Children try to get an apple out of a basin of water but they can use their mouths only, not their hands.



Here are a few links to test your knowledge and vocabulary. Have fun !

Here is the story of Jack:

Jack was a bad man. He was extremely selfish.  He wasn't helpful at all. He didn't like helping people. He was a miser (= he didn't like spending money).

When Jack died, he didn't go to Heaven because he was such a miser but he didn't go to hell either because the Devil didn't want him there. So Jack was stuck. He had to walk the earth, holding a lantern, until Judgement Day.



This is the story that has been told by the Irish people who came to America in the 1800's. They carved their turnips into the face of "Jack-of-the-lantern" to remind themselves what happened to people who were misers. So that's why Americans today carve their pumpkins into jack-o-lanterns.

Halloween is coming soon. Try to find the answers to one or more of these riddles. They are puns :


1) What do you say to a ghost with three heads?

 

2) What kind of street do ghosts like?

 

3) Where do vampires live?

 

4) Why are black cats such good singers?


Black cats are excellent singers because they are mewsical (ie. musical). Well done Aude (8A) !


 

  Best of luck !

Here's the Halloween song we've listened to in class today :
Credits to: Taklit/Kids' Factory Music



I'm a spider on your head,
I'm a skeleton in your bed,
One, two, three, four,
I'm a spider on your head,
I'm a skeleton in your bed.

Hello, hello,
Goodbye, goodbye,
Happy Halloween.

I'm a cat on your head,
I'm a ghost in your bed,
one, two, three, four,
I'm a cat on your head,
I'm a ghost in your bed.

Hello, hello,
Goodbye, goodbye,
Happy Halloween.

I'm a witch on your head,
I'm a pumpkin in your bed,
One, two, three, four,
I'm a witch on your head,
I'm a pumpkin in your bed.

Hello, hello,
Goodbye, goodbye,
Happy Halloween.
