Pupils from a Taverham school enjoyed a 'petit déjeuner' recently when they took part in a French day.

Year two pupils from Taverham Hall Pre-prep School entertained their parents during the annual breakfast, which saw them arriving at school dressed as French waiters and waitresses.

And although the children played dress-up, with many of the boys sporting curly moustaches while the girls wore stylish berets, they also had the chance to practice their language skills.

Each child greeted their parents in French and then displayed their conversational skills by taking part in a question and answer session with each other.

They then performed a range of different sketches, demonstrating their use of basic French, with a lots of fun and humour. They also sang two French songs - Au Clair de la Lune and Alouette.

Visitors were served with croissants and pain au chocolats, accompanied with the choice of tea or coffee. After the parents had finished, the children then enjoyed their very own French breakfast.

Teacher Sandra Nichol, organiser of the event, said: 'The fun the children have had working towards the event has been really infectious. The children have a good grounding in simple French and have a desire to learn more.
