On Tuesday 5 March (Shrove Tuesday, “Mardi Gras”), Reception to Year 6 pupils had a very busy French Morning!
After an assembly led by Sixth Form pupils on the importance of learning a foreign language, the pupils were divided into groups and took part in 5 different activities led by our Year 8 pupils and some French pupils visiting from Cognac.
They had a French quiz on the weather, practised numbers, months of the year and birthdays, made pet masks for our Carnival and learnt all about the French traditions of “Mardi Gras”.
Our Samba Band accompanied the children to the dining hall where they danced with their masks for our Carnival procession. They then had a French lunch (see menu below) and some crêpes of course!
