On 2nd February the Lower One students enthusiastically enjoyed “La Chandeleur” (French Pancake Day) by making their own crêpes.
In France, La Chandeleur also known as Fête de la Lumière, or jour des crêpes marks the possible end of winter and the return of light. To celebrate this event and the oncoming of Spring, the French head to the kitchen to cook crêpes.
Lower One pupils are currently learning about French food and its related vocabulary (meals, fruits and vegetables and more), so this feast day seemed like the perfect opportunity for them to discover the French traditions and to try out their cooking skills.
The students translated the French recipe for pancakes and learnt cooking terms. They then proceeded to have lots of fun making and eating them. The students all agreed that this was a delicious way to learn about the language and culture! ?
