School children fly to Paris for afternoon
2:53pm Monday 3rd February 2014 in News
IT is not every day that school pupils get to fly to Paris for the afternoon but Mickleton Primary made an exception as part of their French studies.
Youngsters in Year 1 and 2 were flown to Paris for the afternoon by professional Pilot, Tim Hayward and cabin crew.
Once they had touched down the children took part in a range of Parisienne themed activities including the opportunity to order their favourite foods in French from a café, draw their own Mona Lisa and have their photograph taken in front of the Eifel Tower.
Head Teacher Adrian Webb said "This was a great opportunity for pupils to put into practice their French language skills they have been learning in the classroom and to learn more about France through a range of interesting and interactive activities."
