Thursday lunchtimes, 13 excitable bilingual students from CE2-CM2 come to “Kid’s Club” for fun activities in English. The activities are varied with the aim being to speak English outside of the classroom environment. We play games, do art and craft, sing, dance, but every year they ask for “The Dragibus Challenge”: they are given sweets and toothpicks and have to build a structure of their choice, making it as big as possible (encouraging them to work in teams and therefore share their sweets).
Our most recent challenge was certainly the most exceptional, featuring The White House! The students showed great team spirit and certainly don’t lack imagination.
