CHRISTMAS Crackers at the Saint-Louis School in La Roche-sur-Yon
The AFB's handicrafts workshop was held on 3 Friday afternoons at the St Louis school in La Roche-sur-Yon to offer 140 students from CE1 to CM2 the making of Christmas crackers.
After a quick explanation on the origin of the Xmas cracker and a visual and sound demonstration (POP!), the Franco-British facilitators helped to make these famous English "ballotins" for which they had carefully prepared each step.
At the end of the session, a Word search grid with Christmas words (Xmas vocabulary) was proposed.
The pupils of the 5 classes, as well as their teachers, were delighted with this intervention and happy to take home a Christmas cracker!
THANK YOU to Angèle, Frances, Francine, Solange, Linda, Fran, Elena and Elisabeth for this preparation and these quality interventions with the little French schoolchildren.
