This afternoon we had a great time trying a few traditional French foods, that our Cannes pen pals eat. We tried baguettes, Camembert, Brie, Boursin, blue cheese, green and black olives, croissants, chocolate crepes and profiteroles .
Tryphena, Joanna, Mirrin and Faith helped to set everything out and kept everyone fed!
It was great to see lots of the class trying new foods and even enjoying them!
We received some more lovely cards from our French pen pals. This time they told us all about the festivals that they have at this time of year. We are writing back to tell them all about SMUHA and the other UHAs in Shetland.
Today we completed all our Shetland postcards to send to our friends in Cannes. They really are beautifully drawn and the French writing is excellent !
We have now finished our videos to send to the French competition. Here is one of the ones that we made earlier – an interview with Mbappe at Paris St Germain! Archie, Ronan and Junias take a bow!!!
During the first week of the holidays Ms Scanlan travelled with a group of teachers from Shetland to work with colleagues in Cannes, France. She visited École communale Jacqueline de Romily and met the class who will be pen pals with our class. This evening the French teachers arrived in Shetland and will be visiting our school on Wednesday and Thursday.
Primary 5/6 and 6/7 will be writing to their new friends soon and finding out all about France.
