HENHAM and Ugley Primary School children got a taste of France during a special-themed lunch.
French is the chosen language as part of the school's modern foreign languages programme and the youngsters were served up a French-style menu for lunch. The event also promoted the school's push of healthy eating and balanced diet.
In the afternoon, classes were engaged in French activities, such as painting Monet's Water Lilies and making Eiffel Tower sculptures.
They also got the chance to sample French bread and cheeses courtesy of local baker Mr Begley, a father of a member of staff.

Acting headteacher Gill Doyle said: "These types of events are profile-raising on two aspects - healthy eating and our modern foreign languages curriculum.
"It also creates a really nice atmosphere and gives a celebratory feel in the week before half term. Most importantly it puts a smile on the children's faces."
