Today was our French themed day and we had a red, white and blue non-uniform day to celebrate. We have spent the day improving our language skills and preparing for our French cafe on Monday. We have learnt how to order some food, to say some numbers and we have created our French menus. The BBC has a good website if you want to practice your french at home.
Today year 6 had a visit from Peggy who came to talk to us about fairtrade. We now know what the fairtrade logo represents, where some fairtrade products are grown and we learnt how Banbury became a fairtrade town. It was a really interesting visit and the children had lots of questions. We would like to thank Peggy for taking the time to talk to us.
As part of our work on the rainforest, we have been looking at the work of the French painter Henri Rousseau. We studied his painting ‘Tiger in a Tropical Storm,’ then we each sketched a section of his picture. Here are some of our sketches so far.
Welcome to our blog, which I will be regularly updating with information about what we have up to in year 6. You will find out who won this week’s certificates, extra information to help you with your homework and pictures of our work. I hope you will regular visit our blog, write some helpful comments and join us on our journey.
