Cart Mill has a new friend visiting our centre, Camembear. He is a shy but slightly mischievous bear that has come all the way from France and, along with Val and Helen, he will be teaching the children to speak a little French as well as find out about the French culture. Today we looked at French food and in particular, crêpes! The children welcomed Camembear by saying bonjour to him. We then sang a little song ‘bonjour les amis’ before making our crêpe batter with Camembear’s help. We then lit the fire and Val told Camembear that the was fire très chaud so he had to be careful! Camembear carefully turned a crêpe and we then sat round the fire and ate them with honey. Bon appétit said Camembear! The boys and girls then said au revoir to Camembear but he’ll be back very soon, French will take place in the centre every Monday and Thursday with all staff using some of the words throughout the day so parlez français beaucoup at home too! This week’s words are bonjour and au revoir.
