Colours of La Tricolore

The school was a sea of red, white and blue last Wednesday as the junior School celebrated French day in style. Some of the outfits were really appealing, so well done to all the girls for putting so much effort in. The Year Six pupils showed off the French they had learned on their recent trip to Normandy by explaining their activities at the Château de la Baudonnière. Mrs Murray worked with each class,
reading books like La Chenille Qui Fait Des Trous (The Very Hungry Caterpillar) and Boucle d’Or et les Trois Ours (Goldilocks and the Three Bears), playing games in French and singing songs; some girls were still singing them days later.

At morning break everyone enjoyed a croissant or a pain au chocolat and the kitchen very kindly laid on a lunch with a French theme. Not all the girls tried the moules frites but they added an authentic touch to the day. At the end of the day, to round things off, everyone went home with a French themed pencil. Ms Taylor has also bought some books in French for a variety of ages and abilities in French and these are now available for the children to read and enjoy in their classrooms.
