NHP French Day
What a day we’ve had in the OB celebrating all things French! Pupils enjoyed a petit déjeuner, making sure to be courteous: using their magic French words ‘s’il vous plaît’ and ‘merci beaucoup’! Each year group had a workshop with Mademoiselle Jamieson and Madame Levell, where they sang in French and showed how much they have learned! Pupils applied past knowledge and communicated with clarity in French! The fun wasn’t over and we had a delicious déjeuner français, then later in the afternoon all of Lower School got together for assembly where we celebrated how well pupils participated and how fantastic all of their costumes were. We had one more surprise in store! French-speaking parents came and read a story in French to all classes in the OB. Merci, les parents! Nous adorons le français!
Pupils in the JCB and PGB were also able to participate in the French lunch, they had discussions with their forms about communicating in French and reflected on some famous Francophones, using their P4C skills.
It was really wonderful to see how much the children enjoyed every element of the day, celebrating their cultural and linguistic knowledge, and sharing their French skills with their friends and teachers.
