On the 15th of July (the day after Bastille Day), Sycamore class came to school dressed in red, white and blue for our French themed day. The day’s learning supported our Food technology and MFL curriculum objectives. The children worked in small groups to prepare ingredients for a French soup from the Provence region called ‘Soupe au pistou’. Under close supervision of LSAs and parent volunteers, the children worked on their chopping skills. Later on in the day, the children turned the classroom into a French café. Half of the class were waiters, and the other half were customers, after which, they swapped roles. They had conversations in French ordering their drink and main meal. Most of the children enjoyed eating the vegetable soup, although some preferred the baguette. The children loved the day and it was a great way to end our ‘Picturesque Provence’ topic.
