CROISSANTS and crepes brought a touch of the French spirit to a Suffolk school today.
Pupils at St Joseph's College junior school donned red, white and blue clothes as part of a celebration of their annual French Day.
Youngsters aged between seven and 11 tucked into croissants, baguettes and 'red wine' (with a distinct blackcurrant squash flavour) in their very own French Café as part of the exercise to learn about the way of life of our neighbours on the continent.
Maths lessons included the use of the a bureau de change and t-shirt printing, face painting and making wine labels were all part of the days activities.
Classrooms and canteens were all decorated in French colours and food technology lessons included getting involved in crepe making.
History lessons about the French Revolution, French knitting, basque dancing and petanque were also on the menu to fill the day with fun things to do.
