Saint Nicolas

We have been learning about French traditions surrounding Saint Nicolas’ Day this week. On the eve of 6th December French children put their shoes outside their door in the hope that Saint Nicolas will come riding by on his donkey and put sweets, chocolates, an orange or a gingerbread man in them!

Visitors from France!

What a wonderful week! We have had the lovely Madame Le Calvé and Madame Do from École Gambetta Cambrai here for their second visit to Barnsley. This was made possible by Erasmus + funding 🇪🇺👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 Both French teachers spent their week here working in KS2 classes, teaching a science lesson in Y6, and French lessons in Y4, Y5 & Y6. They told the story of the wolf ( Le loup) who didn’t want to walk any more. They also presented a film of a “mannequin challenge” done by their classes all round their school & the town of Cambrai – we looked at similarities and differences between our schools, and learned a lot about Cambrai’s history and legends. We have already had our new eTwinning projects approved for this year, and are really looking forward to continuing to work together this year 😄

Bon appétit & joyeuse Halloween

In Y4 we learned to use the phrase il y a ( there is / there are) and revised Halloween vocabulary. In Miss Bartley’s class we had a tasty, if somewhat sticky, treat of croissants and strawberry jam. Miam miam ! And we learned to say Bon appétit! Click on the link to see what we got up to!

In Y6 we revised Halloween vocabulary and made une maison hantée !

Getting spooky

In Year 3 we learned some Halloween vocabulary and read a spooky poem together in French ! Then we drew and labelled our haunted houses. I was particularly impressed by some of the children who decided to include adjectives too ! Wow Y3, that is incredible – especially as we haven’t learned how to use them yet. You used your tools and looked them up ! 😄
