Vive le café des écoliers

PUPILS said bonjour as they created their own French cafe.

Youngsters brought a flavour of Paris to St William’s RCVA Primary School in Trimdon Village during a project.

With the help of school governor and former teacher Mary Cross, the children developed the vocabulary needed to design their own French menus and run a cafe.

The children had to develop their own business concept, plan their own menus and cater for customers.

The classroom was decorated in the colours of the Tricoleur, sounds of accordions gently played in the background and an Eiffel Tower made from wafers was one of many creative centerpieces designed by pupils for their cafes.

Class teacher Peter Bostock said: “As well as improving their modern foreign language skills, the Year 5/6 pupils had to use their entrepreneurial talents to design their own particular Parisian-themed cafe. The children certainly enjoyed the challenge and described the day as magnifique!”
