What a wonderful way to end the half term, with a French-themed dressing up day and a visit to Le Café Français for breakfast. Every class, from Reception to Year 6, ordered ‘un pain au chocolat’, ‘un croissant’ or ‘une brioche’ to eat and ‘un jus de pomme’, ‘un jus d’orange’ or ‘de l’eau’ to drink.
While the accordion music drifted gently across the classroom, the Year 6 children used their best French speaking skills to take orders and serve each class, after which the teachers and our wonderful P.T.A. parents and link governor for Languages served breakfast to the Year 6 children.
We were so impressed with the creative and colourful costumes worn by all the children today, filling the playground with red, white and blue. We have also seen French chefs, chic Parisian ladies, artists and mime artists, a tour de France cyclist and even Napoleon Bonaparte!
Our enormous thanks go out to the P.T.A. for helping us to create such a warm and enjoyable experience for the children. Particular thanks to Mrs Curzon, Mrs McIver, Mrs Singh, Mrs Nice and to all the staff and parents for their contributions to this fantastic fundraising event. Bravo tout le monde!
