As part of ongoing French language lessons, a visiting theatre production company treated Year 2 this week to a performance. We welcomed into our school our very good friends from Big Wheel French Theatre, to help us explore some of the French language and themes that we have been working on so far this term. This was an incredibly fun session with French being the only language spoken in the school studio!
Our guests greeted the children into the studio, and then we exchanged some conversation about our names, where we live, and what our interests are. Our Big Wheel friends were able to use their drama expertise to help all children with some actions to help assist our French language knowledge.
Different characters and props were introduced throughout the session. We introduced a sequence of events and actions, to put together our own Year 2 short story. The finale for the French morning was a quick quiz, with two teams competing over our knowledge of the language and the country.
Many thanks to our friends from Big Wheel French Theatre for such a fantastic morning in Year 2. You can catch up with all of the fun we had in the video above.
