Students at a pair of Letchworth schools have forged new friendships after a barnstorming joint French day.
Event organiser Fiona McCusker who teaches French at both St Thomas More School and Garden City Academy, was keen for the children to get together and share their enthusiasm for the subject while developing their understanding of French culture.
More than 200 enthusiastic pupils, aged between seven and 11, dressed up in the colours of the famous Tricolore flag and took part in a range of activities from playing boules to learning about French artists and the Tour de France.
They also had the chance to use their language skills in a French café, run by staff and students from The Highfield School, who also organised fun French games at lunchtime.
Pupils particularly enjoyed having a go at ordering food and drink in French.

At the end of the day – which was held at St Thomas More – everyone joined together to sing a French song and show off their rock’n’roll dance moves.
Following on from the success of this event, the two schools hope to organise more joint activities during the next academic year.
