Earlier this term, the children of year 5 were tasked with creating their own menu for a French Cafe. They worked in small groups to research the kinds of foods served in a French Cafe and also created a name for their establishment. They learnt the French language needed to be both a waiter/waitress and a customer, including greeting customers, taking orders, ordering food and drink, asking for the bill, paying their bill in Euros and giving / receiving the correct amount in change.
Take a look below at some of their tasty menus!
The Main Event
After all their preparations, the children took part in a French Cafe role play (complete with authentic French music!) The children had great fun with this activity and it was lovely to see them engaged on a practical journey towards learning a new language.
