Fantastique… La Journee Française!

Fantastique… La Journee Française!

The school and children looked maqnifique last Friday adorned in bleu, blanc et rouge, along with plenty of berets and the odd string of garlic!

A French themed picture quiz in our morning assembly was followed by a whole variety of creative activities in and out of the classrooms. EYU and junior classes were all treated to a fun song and dance session based on the traditional song ‘Alouette’. They also really appreciated a story-time from some of our Year 6 ‘authors’ who had created their own children’s books, in previous geography lessons, designed to educate younger children about Paris’ tourist attractions.

Highlight of the day for many of the more senior children was our fun theatre show ‘Le Bistro de Dan Roro’ which exposed the children to some French language and some genuine and traditional French entertainment, including comedy, juggling, mime and ventriloquism. Just as popular was the delicious French style lunch afterwards, which included boeuf bourguignon, quiche au fromage et les crêpes.

Des escargots appeared in the Art room for sketching; Reception made brioches; Eiffel towers were constructed by Year 2 from spaghetti and marshmallows; French scientists and inventors were researched by Year 6; distances between French towns were were measured by Year 5 in Maths; Year 4 researched French vocabulary for the bones of the human skeleton; EYU hosted a tricycle Tour de France; Year 3 wrote a diary entry imagining they were Mona Lisa in the Louvre; Year 1 set up French cafés to practise adding and subtracting money - and then ate the French food! Vive la France! DL
