Year 5 and 6 were delighted to receive their first correspondence from their new French pen-pals! The boys learnt more about life at our partner school, L’Ècole Saint François and they also got to know more about their pen-pals who had attached individual photos, as well as photos of their classrooms, teachers and school grounds. We opted for a traditional mode of communication (‘snail mail‘), which is proving to be an enriching experience for the boys and their friends across the Channel. In their letters, Year 5 and 6 introduced themselves (in French!) and talked about their favourite hobbies. We can’t wait to exchange more letters!
Another exciting development is that Tadgh in Year 7 received a reply to the letter he wrote (in French!) to Moroccan-born French actor, Jean Reno famous for his roles in Leon, The Pink Panther and Flushed Away!
