On Monday Eagles had 29 French children spend the day with us. They came from Moye, which is in the Alps near Switzerland. We started with a Maths investigation working in groups of 4 - two French children and two English children per group. The language barrier made things difficult initially but as I moved around the classroom I could hear children using their French / English skills to find out each other's names.

We had an early lunch (55 children and 6 adults in one classroom got a bit warm!) and the children played football together - England v France. Some of the children also taught each other clapping games from their respective countries.

After lunch we were invited to try a French cheese - Tome des Bauges. It had a mixed reception from the English children (although Mr Major and I loved it) but the French children returned many times for more.

The afternoon saw a tag rugby tournament run by Mr Major and very ably assisted by Alex Jameson. Both refereed matches on their pitches. The children were split into 8 teams (mixed schools) named after World Cup countries and the overall winners were Japan.

The link to the school is http://www.ac-grenoble.fr/ecole/74/jean-devance.moye/ and you can see a paragraph M. Allaire wrote about Gretton in the Projet Scolarugby section.
