Year 4 children have been lucky enough to sample some culinary delights in their French lessons this week. As part of their current topic on food and drink, Mr. Moss kindly agreed to host a French cheese tasting session for each class throughout the week. We sampled brie and roquefort, which are known as the Queen and King of cheeses in France, as well as a delicious fondue with breadsticks and crudités. Back in the classroom we were able to link together our opinion vocabulary (J’adore / J’aime / Je n’aime pas / Je déteste) with the food that we sampled, and there were cries of, “J’adore le brie” alongside declarations of, “Je déteste le roquefort!”
The Year 5 French pen pal exchange children have also been busy making Easter cards to send to France. As a way of practising clothes vocabulary which we studied in the Michaelmas Term, the children also wrote a description of their school uniform alongside their cards. We are interested to hear back from the children in France what they wear to school, as many of our children were surprised to learn that they don’t have a school uniform.
