International Day of La Francophonie - 20th March

Mrs Cook, Head of Modern Languages

21st March 2023

Last week in our French lessons we explored Africa. We looked at where French is spoken as an official language in Africa. We read a traditional tale from Senegal and explored music from Central Africa with a song celebrating mums around the world.  

We celebrated the International Day of La Francophonie on Monday with a lunch inspired by African flavours, including a delicious lamb tagine and couscous. 

I think all the boys were surprised to see how many countries in Africa speak French!
