What better way to embrace the wider world than to celebrate the French language with a whole day jam packed with French activities! Last week, the children at WPS experienced a day immersed in French culture without even leaving Wandsworth. Children in upper school were confident and clear as they gave their opinion in French on a variety of French and Swiss cheeses, whilst the lower school were inspired by the iconic monuments of Paris to produce their own pointillist paintings based on Seurat’s Eiffel Tower.
A French flavour found its way into other subjects too, with calculations in French and a study of the impact of World War I on French civilians to name but two of the inventive ways the WPS staff interpreted the day’s theme. Monsieur Abdel cooked up a fabulous French feast for lunch, there was pétanque played in the playground and Year 5 taught the school ‘tête, épaules, genoux, pied’. Bravo à tous !
