This half term started off with an exciting delivery. Year 1 had received a postcard from Barnaby Bear; he is currently in France. We decided to pack up our bags, grab our passports and head to the airport! The children were greeted by inspection officers Mrs Bennett and Mrs Carter before taking their seats with cabin crew Miss Cheer and Miss Roach. The children were ready for take off with Summercroft Airline. When landing in France, the children learnt a variety of words such as ‘bonjour’, ‘merci’ and au ‘revoir’. We explored different landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre and Notre Dame cathedral.
Following on from our French theme, the children recreated Henri Matisse’s famous painting called the ‘The Snail’; they ripped paper to create their masterpiece!
To end our week in France, we had a delicious French breakfast where the children tasted croissants, Pain au Chocolat and Jus’ d orange – it was yummy!
