Childen enjoy going French

Tudhoe Grange School added another busy day to its academic year, when it opened its doors to children from year five of its primary feeder schools for a 'French Transitions Day'. On arrival at the school the children went into classes where a wide range of French based activities and quizzes had been prepared for them. When they all got together again in the lower school hall at about eleven o'clock, they were rewarded for their efforts with an ice lolly served by Tudhoe Grange students from tables that had been set up earlier, the only requirement being that they had to ask for whichever flavour they wanted in French! The morning ended with a song, but not just any song of course, one sung in French. New words had been written to the tune of 'The Twelve Days of Christmas', turning it into 'The Waiter Song'. After a very short rehearsal time, the children sang the song from start to finish without a hitch! The great deal of planning and preparation that goes into an apparently simple event like this, and that it all went so smoothly says a lot for the hard working staff at Tudhoe Grange School, who put on this day during a week in which Chinese visitors were also in school.
