After a fast moving and informative training day the teachers and Les Puces staff sat down for a lovely Christmas lunch. This year we had a really big table as Les Puces just keeps growing!

Little Beast under the sea was an amazing half term with a great book, swimmingly good song and fantastic Make It Project.  The secret under sea 3D scene was a real hit, and you all did so well colouring and constructing the project.  Here are some of the highlights of the photos sent in by your teachers!  It's lovely to see you all having so much fun!  Keep up the good work and well done to everyone; teachers and puces!

The Spring term brought out the creative side of our Puces as they constructed, coloured and stuck together all the component parts of our Spring garland. Crazy googly eyed chicks, multi coloured felt flowers, bells, eggs and tissue blooms all pegged onto our special Les Puces ribbon to make a festive bunting to hang up for Easter at home!   Well done to everyone for such lovely creations!

Hop to it!

Our founder and CEO Mandie, joined a high level educational trade mission to the kingdom of Morocco, with the aim of taking Les Puces to North Africa to teach English and French. With meetings and visits in Casablanca and the capital Rabat, Mandie met the Minister for Education, the British Ambassador and many other important people in Moroccan education. We hope that the contacts she made on this trip will lead to the Les Puces method being used to teach in pre-schools and primary schools across Morocco.

Rex's Book!

The 'What colour is the sky' half term had everyone making their own Les Puces TVs.  First they made the 'programme' film reel to go inside; colouring and embellishing the story from the book. Then they made up the TVs with lots of discussion about how old TVs had actual buttons and a tuning dial!  Then in the Les Puces TV workshops the TVs were ready to roll with our puces telling the story from the book in their own (French) words!  Fantastic projects, well done everyone!

Our 20th published book!

We just looked down the page on the playground and found the picture of our first ever published book, The Cheeky Crow!  Wow! It feels like only yesterday, and here we are publishing bilingual book No 20.  What an achievement!  Congratulations to everyone at Les Puces: writers, illustrators, translators, and editors for your tremendous creative efforts and believing that we could do it!  Here's looking forward to this year's 3 new books!

Petit Paul veut être Père Noël

Christmas half term

.....the stockings were hung by the chimney with care in hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there. Petit Paul wished big this half term as he wanted to be Father Christmas!  We also wished big with the Make it Project to create a fantastic A3 pop up scene from the book complete with Father Christmas's legs dangling down the chimney! This was our most ambitious project to date and took a lot of careful cutting, colouring and sticking.  The results, however, were worth all the pre-Christmas hard work and turned out to be simply stunning!  Well done to all of you, teachers and pupils, for such fantastic projects!  Here are a few of the many pop up projects you created.

 

 

 

 

 

......and finally did anyone make the Christmas star biscuits that were on the recipe on the back of the project folder?  Pictures please!

The Autumn term was great fun learning about woodland creatures and following the children on their woodland walk.  You all completed a great vocabulary sheet and then customised and played the Woodland Walk Game!  Here are some of the results from around our Les Puces Classes! Well played everyone!

'Summer'

The Summer Term was a riot of colourful worksheets and project cards, a beautiful story and a catchy song to rap along with. We followed Leo the puppy and the children on a day out to the beach and learned lots of summer vocabulary.  Well dome everyone and enjoy Summer!

Les Puces - Illustrator'sVisit 

One of Les Puces's talented illustrators, Agatha O'Neill, the creator of Arty, recently visited Bishop Chavasse Primary School to read the Arty on Safari book to the children and sign books for everyone!  It was a great opportunity for artist and children to meet up and be inspired!
