P6&7 have been learning about French foods and how to order in a café. We set up our own French creperie in the playground where we performed our café dialogues, ordered food and made our own crepes.
Emma: I enjoyed learning how to ask for different things in French and making the crepes.
Oliver: The crepes were nice. I had a crepe suzette.
Callum: It was interesting making them, we put too much salt (sel) in!
Jonathan: I enjoyed flipping the crepes. I said, “Je voudrais une crepe suzette.”
Rhuaridh: I had a crepe suzette (sucre et citron).
Lily: I said, “Je voudrais une crepe au chocolat.”
Sam: We wrote a script about the café. It was a conversation between the serveur and the customer.
Finlay: I liked making them. Je voudrais une crepe suzette.
Jonathan: Happy holidays to our French friends in Ecole du Pre de l’Eau.
Emma: We hope you have enjoyed hearing from us because we’ve enjoyed reading yours.
We certainly had the sun this year! Many thanks to parents for your support, well done to the winning parents’ relay team and to Peffer House for winning the trophy. Here are some photos of the day for you to enjoy.

The Scottish Government has proposed to increase the provision of free childcare from 600 hours to 1140 hours per year for children who are 3 or 4 years old, as well as for vulnerable 2 year olds. With this in mind the Government is conducting a survey exploring how parents would wish to use this increase. The results of this survey will help guide policy on early years child care provision. In order for the survey to produce representative results it is important that we reach as many parents of 3 or 4 year old children from as wide a variety of backgrounds as possible. This includes those who do not currently use free child-care provision.
The survey is available at the following link. It should take around 10 minutes to complete.
