Having the confidence to order food and drink in French is fundamental to anyone wishing to visit France. This week, Year 4 completed their final lesson on the topic of food and needed to use everything they had learnt to order and serve food at a french café.
For one morning only, Classes 9 + 10 were treated to a French breakfast. They were able to sing a song in French (to the tune of a popular Taylor Swift song!), order food and drink in French and, of course, taste the foods typically associated with a French breakfast.
I was nervous ordering in French at the beginning but now I feel much more confident. Summer, Class 9, Year 4
Every student had a go at both ordering French food, as well as serving. Both classrooms were buzzing with French language, such as “je voudrais” ( I would like), s’il vous plaît (please) and the signature phrase “bon appetit” (used as a salutation to someone about to eat).
I definitely know how to order more in French next time I go to France! Oscar, Class 9, Year 4.
All of the students enjoyed the café atmosphere and certainly took pleasure from tasting the French pastries on offer with a glass of jus d’orange or jus de pomme.
I preferred eating the croissant today, it was tasty! Freddie, Class 10, Year 4
