Bastille Day French-Themed Day: Wednesday 14th July
Bonjour tout le monde! In case you didn't know, that means 'Hello everyone' in French. We had a wonderful time in Year Five learning all about the origins and cultural significance of Bastille Day. Every 14th July, there's a national day of celebration for the important role the storming of the Bastille de Sainte Antoine played in leading the people of France to overthrow King Louis XVIth, resulting in France becoming a republic.
Below are a selection of photos taken during our French Cafe in the afternoon, where the children had the opportunity to enjoy bread (baguette/pain), pancakes (crepe), croissants and cheese (brie).
Au revoir, et merci.
