Du 4 au 8 Juin 2018:
Classe 6 had an amazing week in Le Clos de l’Ancien Pressoir, a château in Commes, Normandie. They practised their French, ate lovely (and, to them, sometimes strange) food, learnt a lot about history and did some sightseeing.
“It was so interesting and fun. I loved trying all the cheeses!” Barnabé
“C’était super!“, Ellie
“I loved the snails. Bon appêtit!” Epi
“I loved the trip so much that I am definitely doing French at GCSE.” Theo
“It was the best week ever and I loved everything, especially eating snails!” Niamh
Classe 6 was very happy to receive the letters from their French pen friends!
“She has a cat too!”, “He likes fishing like me!”, “He plays rugby as well!”, “She looks just like me!” were some of the comments going around the classroom.
Merci et à bientôt!
Classes 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 et 7 ont fait une assemblée en français!
- stories (La Petite Poule Rousse and Les Trois Petits Cochons),
- a song (Mon Ane) and
- poems (L’éléphant and Escargot).
Bravo à tous!
“I felt nervous but once I started speaking French I felt confident.” Rebecca, classe 5.
“I felt happy performing in front of everybody!” Elizabeth, classe 5.
“It was really nice to see such a range of ages performing.” Maisie et Barnabé, classe 6.
In the first match we played really well against Yateley Manor School. Our communication was great and so where our passes. But we needed to win a bit more. The score was 3-0 to them. The player of the match was Darcy.
Our second match was against Beaudesert Park School. We defended well but they got five goals past us. Unfortunately, we didn’t get any goals again. The player of the match was Grace.
Then our third match was against Port Regis. We defended so well that the score was 0-0. Our defending was great and so was our spacing for passes. The player of the match was Amelie.
The forth match was against Chafyn Grove School. This was the same as before good passing and good communication. But what we did much better was running up the pitch when somebody hit the ball. The player of the match was Millie.
Our fifth match was against Perrot Hill School. This game was just after lunch so we were raring to go. But it somehow took us longer to figure them out. The player of the match was Ella.
Then our sixth match was against Salisbury Cathedral School. In this match our spacing was great. Millie and I took turns in the 16-yard hits. I was the player of the match this time.
Our final match was against Richard Pate School. In this match for fifteen minutes it was 0-0. So, we went into a golden goal which means we have five minutes to score a goal the first team that does score wins. But it was still 0-0. So, we went into a penalty shoot. The three people that got volunteered to do that was me, Millie and Amelie. It was a tense moment, I tried to chip in the first goal but missed. Then Richard Pate School scored. Up next was Millie, her hit was straight to the gaolie who kicked it back, she then ran out of time score again. Richard Pate School manged to score their second goal which made them the winners. The player of the match was Ava.
The overall player of the whole day was Amelie.
This was a fantastic day, where we learnt loads of new hockey skills and tips and had so much fun.
Thank you to Mrs Bell and Mr Evans for taking us.
Sophie (Year 6)
Classe 6 a passé cinq jours en Normandie en mai. C’était super!
We spoke lots of French, ate delicious food and visited historical places.
We had French lessons to practise buying fruits in the Bayeux market, ordering “crêpes” and “glaces”, going around Port-en-Bessin for a treasure hunt and doing a cheese tasting.
We visited Notre Dame de Bayeux, Omaha Beach and the American Memorial and Cemetery.
We had a fantastic time and it was hard to say “au revoir”!
Classes 2, 3, 4, 5 et 6 ont fait une assemblée en français! They performed stories, a song and a poem.
“On Monday the sixth of March year five and year seven did a French play together. We had been rehearsing it for quite a while, with only having had two full rehearsals on stage together we did really well. I really enjoyed doing it with the year seven. I would love to do another one.”
By Maisie, classe 5
“I enjoyed introducing the year 7 and 5 story of Petit Elephant!”
Barnaby, classe 5
In our French lesson we wrote letters to our French penfriends and today we received their letters. We were very excited to get them! They were funny and had lots of photos.
Jessica et Sophie
Year 4, 5 and 6 have written their letters to the French Father Christmas!
Not really a blog post but we’d love you to watch our new school video, out in time for Christmas.
