Infant Department - French Week

The Brackenfield Infant children have enjoyed a French week, organised by French teacher Suzanne Ridings. The Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 pupils worked in mixed age groups to participate in lots of exciting activities. They played French playground games, learnt about the Tour de France and made strings and strings of bunting!), learnt about the different parts of a bicycle in French, constructed their own Eiffel towers, baked French flag buns and went on a French treasure hunt to name just a few! The highlight of their week was a visit from two members of the Harrogate Petanque Club, who demonstrated the French game and then supervised all the children playing Petanque for the first time! The week culminated in the children opening a French Café for their families, serving them homemade croissants and chocolate chaud!
