Vive la France at Coppull Parish French Day

We had a wonderful start to the week, celebrating French Day. All the children and staff got into the spirit and wore red, white and blue to represent the colours of the French tricolor flag, and threw themselves into the exciting activities their teachers had planned. We hired a French dance company for the day, who played a hurdy-gurdy and an accordion (typical French instruments) and taught every class to dance, whilst counting out the steps (in French naturally) and learning new vocabulary. It was great fun! Having visited several of our classes today, I could see the children learning about French artists, lots of geography taking place, as well as Maths, art and DT projects, whilst also learning about the food and culture of France. Take a look at the photographs to see what a fabulous day they all had.
