INFANT pupils at Bowbrook House School have celebrated their language learning by enjoying a fabulous French day.

Children from Nursery through to Year 2 at Bowbrook House School, have been learning French in their weekly lessons throughout the Autumn term.

However, they were excited to use their new language skills in a French cafe, set up in an infants classroom with their teachers acting as the waiters.

In the morning the children made their own croissants to enjoy later in the cafe.

They completed STEM challenges in teams, constructing famous Parisian landmarks, such as the Eiffel Tower.

They also joined in with French stories, such as La chenille fait des trous (The very hungry caterpillar), sang songs and played fun games.

Sarah Ridge, the head of prep school, in Pinvin, near Pershore, came for a visit and relaxed with the children in ‘Le café de Paris’.

Mrs Ridge said: “The children had an absolutely fabulous day.”

Max Taylor, from nursery, said: “I loved my strawberries and croissant!”

While Elena Woodward, year two, added: “The cafe is amazing, I love it!”

Sally White, the school’s reception class teacher, and Lisa Mao, the infant class teacher, both said how wonderful it was to hear the children using their French vocabulary skills to order in the French cafe.

The children are now moving on to learning Spanish in their weekly lessons and the teachers are already planning a Spanish day for later in the year.
