Year 6 French Day June 2021

Y6 celebrated 4 years of French learning with a French Day on Tuesday.  The highlight was undoubtedly the CafĂ© Velmead, where children could order pain au chocolat, croissant & chocolat chaud.  The morning also featured a music quiz, treasure trail and puzzles, all of which were completed by Y6 with their usual enthusiasm and sense of fun.

Ratatouille was a welcome rest after lunch before heading outside once more for French cricket.  Y6 excelled themselves, as always, and are looking forward to taster Spanish when they return from Little Canada.
