Reception got off to a flying start with the senses being exposed to all things French. We had Debussy playing in the background, the smell of camembert wafting through the classroom and pictures of Paris on the IWB.
We tasted pate, salami, baguettes and French cheese all washed down with glasses of grape juice. We listened to stories about Madaline,a little girl who lives in France with Miss Clavel who can be quite naughty at times!
We made the Tricolore and learnt to say the colours in French and found out about a well known French artist called Matisse. We learnt that as he grew old he was unable to paint, but instead used blocks of colour paper and scissors to create wonderful images—just like us!
