La journée Francaise

On lundi, vingt-cinq juin, the annual journée francaise got underway with pupils arriving in the customary bleu, blanc, rouge. Year 7s set up the bureau de change in the Quad as eager pupils exchanged Pounds for Euros before morning registration.

Assembly started with Axel (Year 3) and Maelys (Year 2) reading Le Notre Père. Next Monsieur Draper welcomed Year 6 parents, who had arrived to watch the photo / video footage of this year’s French Residential trip.

Following assembly, parents made their way to the outdoor French café. Here they sat back and basked in the early summer sunshine enjoying the atmospheric music; being treated to un café crème avec un pain au chocolat and being served by their own children.

One of the most popular parts of the day was the pupil café. An extended prep school break started with Year 6 serving Years 3 and 4, then it was the turn of Years 5, 7 and 8 before the café concluded with Year 6 pupils serving each other. Years 1 and 2 and Kindergarten / Reception were served separately by a small team of Year 6 waiters and waitresses - it was great to see older pupils serving younger siblings. Everyone enjoyed the food and excellent service. Street entertainers, Sam (Year 7) and Chloe (Year 6) were joined by caricature painters: Honor, Rufus and Abi and they were as popular as ever, particularly with the lower school pupils.

At lunchtime Max (Year 6) said grace in French and Monsieur Draper announced the winners of the Year 3 French menu competition. First place was shared by: Edward S, Fraser M, Bea and Patrick; second place was shared between Addison, Madeleine, Lottie, Hermione and Oscar and third place was shared between Charlotte, and Alex. The delighted winners were rewarded with a variety of French pencils, stickers and book markers.

Meanwhile, our celebrity French chef Jerry was slaving away to produce a special French déjeuner comprising: Moules Marinières, Croque-Monsieur, quiche végétarienne avec de la salade and for dessert, une glace à la framboise.

Throughout the day lessons took on a French theme as teachers and pupils entered into the spirit of cultural exchange and language learning. It was a truly fantastic day!
