Bonjour! In Week 5, our Language B Captain, Arnaud McVicker, organised the "Label your Class" competition for the Junior School. Every class was invited to label as many classroom items as they could by the end of the week. Arnaud provided a poster for inspiration and a collection of post-it notes to every class so that they could label everything easily. I included a 15 minute session at the start of my lessons, so that each class could begin the process but after that, it was up to the boys to find the time and vocabulary to decorate their classrooms with post-it notes. The response was great, the boys were excited to label items and were very inventive in finding more unusual and different things to label, such as 'charger', 'vent' and 'craft table'. I wonder, do you know the French words for those items? Bravo Arnaud for making French an exciting and enjoyable pastime for our classes - may the best class win!

Au revoir.
