Early Years French Event
EXPRESS YOURSELF, NORTH EAST FESTIVAL OF LANGUAGES
To celebrate the county’s Festival of Languages this week, Nursery and reception pupils have enjoyed learning about France and have picked up some new language along the way.
The nursery class transformed their role play area into a French Café, painted masterpieces in the Louvre and moulded French patisseries with play dough. All the children have enjoyed sharing French greetings with their friends and teachers, they have learned ‘Heads, Shoulder’s Knee’s and Toes’ in French as well as other songs and phrases. They have created French flags and listened to traditional French music.
One of the favourite parts of the week was learning about French foods! The children have had the opportunity to share Baguette, Pain au Chocolat, Croissant, Brioche and experience the smell and taste of freshly made garlic butter!
To top off the week our reception children enjoyed joining in with Nathalie Paris’ French puppet show, a special online session for the children to learn some more French language.
