Year 2 French food tasting
Bonjour! Year 2 took part in a French food tasting and tried a variety of foods including Brie, baguette and pain au chocolat. They also brushed up their culinary skills when designing their own sweet crepe filled with chocolate spread, jam and bananas. During the week, the children expanded their vocabulary and created their own family tree, revised numbers to 50 and got mucky with paint whilst learning how to pronounce the names of different colours.
This half term has been dominated by our annual residential trip, end of year tests and a variety of exciting events in school. I never cease to be astounded by the energy and enthusiasm of our teachers and support staff on a daily basis, all contributing to making children’s experiences here so fulfilling. In addition, our leadership team and governing body strives to ensure that Montpelier maintains its profile as one of the most sought-after schools in West London. Discussions with children, parents and staff, combined with research and observations, help to shape our decision making each year. Recent renewed concerns about safety have also been at the forefront of everybody’s minds and we are actively reviewing both our curriculum and our school procedures in this regard. Safety will always come first, but supporting everybody’s understanding of the world around us also plays a key part in developing healthy minds, hearts and attitudes. Wishing everybody a happy half term break.
