Vive la France!
On Friday 21st June, Rose Hill took part in the annual French day wearing the traditional bleu, blanc, rouge with accessories such as le béret, curly moustache, garlic and onions necklaces and other props.
Year 6 and year 7 parents were invited to watch the footage of this year’s residential trip to France and children shared their favourite part of the trip. Following assembly, all parents made their way to the outdoor café. Here they sat back enjoying les rayons du soleil avec un café et un pain au chocolat served by their own children.
One of the most popular parts of the day was the pupils café. Year 6 and Year 7 helped serving the children from Year 2 to Year 5 practising ordering in French using euros. Kindergarten and Reception were served separately by Madame Sachet who came to see how hard they worked to build “La Tour Eiffel” and the children joined in the sing-song of Frère Jacques.
During breaktime, children played la pétanque whilst other practice their shooting skills playing le football activity led by the Year 7 and Year 6. The Year 6 girls were very busy drawing portrait for the children who were delighted by the quality of art. Sam in Year 8, demonstrated his great diabolo skills for the second year.
At lunchtime, Madame Lang-Daly said grace en français (twice!) la cantine was decorated by French menus and poster designed by Year 6 and Year 7. Talking about menu, Jerry made a feast with his menu: with le plat du jour coq au vin, gratin dauphinois, haricots verts et les délicieuses profitéroles. Merci au chef et aux cuisinières.
Throughout the day lessons took on a French touch as teachers and pupils entered into the spirit of cultural exchange and language learning. It was fantastique!
