The children will love singing the galette's song which will be displayed on the board so it can help recap work on phonics then they can all join in throughout the story.
The children can also join in with the word "galette" and the names of the animals if the reader stops and points at the pictures.
More confident children or children who find the chorus too hard will also be able to join in with "gallette, galette, je vais te manger!".

This story is a well-known traditional children's story in France and is perfect to use to introduce a lesson on "la galette des rois" around 6th January.

The children will love joining in with the story and will learn about what can happen when you get a little too cocky…

Topics or themes:
Cultural: l'épiphanie in January; animals

Any you would like to highlight; the text is quite complex grammatically speaking.


How much time required:
half a lesson
