STEBBING Primary School, or en Francais Stebbing l'Ecole Primaire as it was known last week, held a French workshop day for parents and children.

Last Thursday children were encouraged to learn all about our European neighbours by taking part in croissant-making and French Boules, learning about French painters and even wine-making.

Headteacher Janet Matthews said: "We invited parents to take part to show them what the children have been up to in lessons. They made it clear the wine making was indeed their favourite part of the day!"

The school teaches French as part of its curriculum, which will become compulsory for all schools in 2010.
