Cherry class exploring French Christmas traditions- 16.12.20

Today in French, Cherry explored how France celebrated Christmas. We found it interesting that a yule log in France is a special log that is put on the fire so if Mary and baby Jesus needed a place to stay there would be somewhere warm for them. We also found out that in some areas of France it is a tradition to have 13 desserts as part of their Christmas meal.

After learning about France and their traditions, we began using our knowledge of French to create Christmas pictures. We use our French numbers, colours and shapes to help us. If we were unsure what a French word meant, we used our learning value resourcefulness to figure it out by using books and bilingual dictionaries.
