During the week
- Create a wall display by printing out the story map picture from the Activity: Monsieur Mangetout story map and add labelled pictures for all the food that Monsieur Mangetout eats, or create a wall display for a version of the story that the children have made up.
- Research the real-life ‘Monsieur Mangetout’ (Michel Lotito, 1950-2007) – you can use dictionary skills to compile a list of some of the crazy things he used to eat!
- French afternoon tea is called Le goûter. You’ll find lots of ideas for typical children’s sweet snacks online.
