What a brilliant afternoon we've all had today in French. We video called Miss Glynn's auntie who has lived in France for 35 years and she asked us lots of questions in French. Here are some of the questions that she asked us?
- What is your name?
- How are you?
- How old are you?
- Who is in your family?
- What items do you have in your pencil case?
She taught us a lot about correct pronunciation and told us to keep up the hard work in French lessons so that she can ask us lots more questions next time. She seemed very impressed!

What an exciting morning we've had learning all about Islam and Ramadan today!

We found it funny watching Miss Glynn and Ms Druce struggling to put their headscarves on!
