Le Chandeleur et Mardi Gras
In French the children have compared Shrove Tuesday in Britain and in France. They learnt that in France there are two celebrations; Le Chandeleur (Candlemas - 2nd February) when families eat pancakes (crêpes) and Mardi Gras (25th February) when across the country, towns and cities celebrate with grand parades, wearing fancy dress and promenading through the town. To join in the celebration, Kestrel children have made their own carnival masks.

The children have been practising new verbs to show what skills they have. They have recognised new vocabulary and matched images with the words.
In French, the children made their own cards and learnt about the Christmas traditions followed by French children in preparation for the Feast of St. Nicolas on 6th December.
