French Play

Year 5 and 6 boys have enjoyed a great interactive performance from Onatti Production, the delivery of which was both in French and English enabling them to gently immerse themselves in the target language for fifty minutes.  

The year is 1540 and a young English Knight, William travels to France in search of a beautiful French Mademoiselle. But not for himself, he has been sent by King Henry VIII to find a suitable wife – his fourth!  Once William has located a suitable match, he must paint her portrait and return to England to collect his reward.  William arrives in France totally ill-equipped. He can’t speak much French, he has no idea where he is going and, he can’t paint!

The boys were keen participators and helped the lost English knight with his little knowledge of French.
