Getting a taste for the la vie francaise at the Pre-Prep

The Pre-Prep turned red, white and blue for French Week.  There were different activities each day including French storytelling, watching a French film (the acclaimed and beautifully animated Kirikou and the sorceress) and quizzes on the learning pads.  On Tuesday afternoon, Y2 took part in lots of different French activities including a treasure hunt around the garden, looking for clues written in French as they went.  They also cooked various traditional French recipes for Degustation the following day.

Keenly anticipated, Degustation took place on Wednesday afternoon, and what an array of French delights there were to try!  There was everything from cheese and baguettes to Far Breton, (made by the girls the day before), to the delicacies of l’escargots and cuisses de grenouille which many of the pupils happily tucked into!  The piece de resistence was an amazing and delicious Croque en Bouche, kindly made by one of the parents.

The week was rounded off with a trip to Café Rouge for hot chocolate and pastries – the perfect end to a week of new experiences and fun!  Tres bien!
