Mrs Newbery's Class - 5/6N 

La France Fantastique

with literacy work based on "The Family Under the Bridge"

by Natalie Savage-Carlson

 

 

 

Our Stunning Start........

The children arrived at school to find their classroom transformed into a French Café

A coded message informed the children of their next topic....

 

Louis Braille was the youngest of 4 children.  He was born in Coupvray, France in 1809.  Blinded by an accident at the age of 3 he still became an excellent scholar.  At the age of 10 he was sent to the Royal Institute for Blind Youth in Paris.  By the age of 15 he had developed a tactile  system that would enable visually impaired people to both read and write.  Known today simply as "Braille", his system is still in use the world over.

The coded message: YOUR NEW TOPIC IS FRANCE

 

 

The children enjoyed a taste of France........

Brioche

croissant, pain au chocolat

(and apple juice to represent wine!)

 

 

The children are working on their own story, based very loosely on a book they are reading in class.  "The Family Under the Bridge" is set in Paris.
