In this short video, Key Stage 2 French pupils can get a sense of how life used to be in Martinique, as a local boy interviews his grandfather.

Eight-year-old Matis asks his grandfather what life was like when he grew up as a boy in Fort de France, the capital of Martinique.

They discuss where his grandfather lived, his diet, school habits and aspirations for when he grew up.

Filmed in Fort de France, Martinique, this video supports curriculum unit 22 for KS2 French, Then and Now, and gives primary pupils the opportunity to develop their modern language skills and understanding of the local culture.
