North-east primary school pupils impressed parents with their French skills at a special French café event yesterday.
Around guests were invited to join primary six pupils at Monquhitter’s annual celebration of the county’s language and cuisine.
Since the start of the school term, the children have been learning the vocabulary they would need on the day to serve their guests entirely in French.
Teacher Gail Robertson said: “The most challenging part about organising this event for the children was learning the language.
“However, the children were really motivated to learn new vocabulary they’d need on the day and I’m proud of the work they put in.
“It was much different from normal lessons but it was very effective and I hope to do it again next year.”
The menus were in French and the choices included sandwich au fromage, sandwich au jambon, pain au chocolat and croissants.
Ahead of the event, pupils divided themselves into a variety of different roles, from waiters to chefs.
In addition to learning how to take orders in French, the pupils also entertained the visitors with four French songs.
And they also learned their numbers in French, up to 200, so they could stage a raffle, with a series of French-themed prizes up for grabs.
