On Thursday the 19th September our whole school had a special French Day. Everyone was encouraged to dress up in French-themed clothes, there was a lot of rouge, blanc et bleu! We did lots of different French activities and we all had a great morning. Here is what the Grade Prep/Ones had to stay about French Day:
Today was French Day. I liked that when you had to make your own badge wit hthe red, while and blue.
We got to wear French colours. Some people are wearing blue, red and white.
Some people won prizes. The prizes were for best puppets. The prize was a French ribbon and a chocolate frog.
We made puppets. Some people did shows with their puppets in the assembly area. We used the new puppet theatre. It has blue and red curtains and it is painted red and blue. It has got the French colours on it.
Some people got to do performances with the puppet theatre.
At assembly each house group walked around in a circle showing off their French colours.
We made little bags with pepper and herbs. These are called bouquet garni.
We liked French Day because we got to do French and Performing Arts at the same time.
French was very good and we did lots of things. We watched a movie. We had special Fench pancakes called crepes.
We played petanque. How you play is someone throws a snitch and other people have to throw these other big metal balls. Whoever gets closest to the snitch gets to throw the snitch for the next game.
French was really fun because we got to make our own puppets.
We love French Day!!
Thankyou Madame Sam, we had a great time!
