Don’t forget to wear your bleu, blanc et rouge for French Day on Thursday the 22 August. The theme for this day is to celebrate many French themes, including the connection that France has with Africa. We are lucky to have Jali Kuyateh playing the Kora and telling us a little about his instrument, then we will be making Animal masks, learning some African drumming and dances, and practising some French songs and a play.
The morning will culminate at recess when we will enjoy some performances and celebrate our learnings (and perhaps eat some French and African food too!)
Parents are welcome to help and participate too- we’d love to see you then!
A big thankyou to all our French Day helpers: ‘un grand merci pour toute l’aide on our French day!!!’
A day of fun and education, with some wonderful petanque displays, incredible works of art and puppetry, singing, and delicious crepes. We would love to hear about anything you cook with your bouquet garnis!
Here are some photos pour votre amusement:
Look at the two maps below. Can you identify how many of the 205 countries competing in the London Olympics 2012 are French speaking? Madame Sam would love to hear your findings …..Loterie tickets are up for grabs! Bring your list to the next French lesson! Bon Chance!
