French Food

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!

Visit from French Teachers from Cannes

This week Suzy Drogy-Meier and Yann Gueyffier from Cannes came to visit our school on  Tuesday and Wednesday. They really enjoyed their visit and loved meeting the class and all the staff. They visited lots of classes and enjoyed working with the children, having conversations in French, reading books and helping our class write to their new pen pals in French. We’re looking forward to working together this year.

École communale Jacqueline de Romilly, Cannes

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.
