The teachers planned various activities, such as creating the Eiffel Tower using art straws for Foundation year, exploring famous French landmarks using Google Earth for years four and five and learning about a famous French highwayman in Year six.

The kitchen staff put on a French menu of quiche Lorraine with sautéed potatoes with chocolate crepes for dessert.

The dining hall was transformed into a French café, with traditional French music and red and white checked tablecloths.

“The children and staff thoroughly enjoyed the day in their red, white and blue clothes and were able to practise lots of their spoken French. The children also enjoyed tasting French foods like pain au chocolat and croissants,” said Katie.

She added: “The whole experience has meant that their learning of another language has been meaningful, enabling them to appreciate other cultures, their history, geography and traditions.”

Admissions to the school year 2023/2024 are open and a bus service running from Newark to the school has been made available.
