The year 5 and year 6 children this week have enjoyed making links with a French primary school (Henri Wallon Primary School in Lyon).  The French children had recorded themselves introducing themselves in English, and we shared with them our recent year 6 fashion shows.  As the year progresses we will continue to make links with them as much as we can, and in upcoming topics such as food (with year 6) we will be able to look at cultural differences between the two schools.  The main difference that our students noticed was that the French students weren’t wearing a uniform, and we looked enviously at the sunshine out of their classroom window!
