Rawson primary school, Halifax, hosted a French intercultural learning day. Pupils dressed in red, white and blue and ate croissants, pain au chocolates and baguettes and learnt about the French composer Claude Debussy and artist Claude Monet.

Year 3/4 teacher Emma Malone said: “It will be compulsory for all primary schools to include a foreign language on the syllabus. Ahead of this, we want pupils and staff to feel confident and excited about a second language. The day was thoroughly enjoyed by the whole school.”
