French Culture Club 1st May 2019

This from Mrs Ramsumair:

“Today our dedicated francophiles were learning about the importance of the 1st May as “La fête du Travail” or Labour Day in France. The pupils were very disgruntled to hear that they would not be in school if they were in France, but recovered when we reminded them that they don’t have to come in on Monday! Our Foreign Language Assistant, Claire taught them about the significance of the muguet (the Lily of the Valley which is offered on Labour Day) and the historical background of this special day, and then they got busy crafting these beautiful wire decorations, whilst listening to some French music – for a truly authentic feel!”
