Our French pen-pals come to visit!
Earlier this term Year 6 finally got to meet their French pen-pals. They had been exchanging letters during the year and on June 5th the French students spent the day here at Whitfield Aspen School.
The day started with the children meeting their penfriends and they stayed together as they enjoyed participating in a carousel of activities. The weather was on our side so they were able to spend lunchtime on the field, playing football, doing gymnastics and really getting to know each other. It was lovely to hear our pupils trying out their French and gaining confidence as the day progressed.
To complete our day, we gathered in the Hall where each school sang a song and squash and biscuits were provided by WASPFA before saying farewell to our new friends. Some tears were shed but hopefully some of the children will stay in touch!
