Here’s a video of Orla’s Junior Infant class giving a great presentation, and singing, about France during Assembly.

Junior Infants loved learning about France. They learned French phrases, tasted French foods and learned a French song which they performed at assembly. They did projects about France for homework and painted French flags in class. They particularly enjoyed following Barnaby Bears tour of Paris on the interactive whiteboard.
