Chasse au trésor...

The GS-CP went on a treasure hunt!
They had to solve riddles, do crossword puzzles, find and try all different possible combination of a lock, locate clues on a school map... They used their knowledge in reading, maths and science and wonderful team work to get to the treasure!
This was a lot of fun! Bravo les aventuriers!

Locating where to dig in the snow to find the next clue...

We found it!

Les mots croisés

Time to check if we were right and get to the next riddle.

Find the intruder...

The class found all the possible combination for the lock with the number each team collected. It's time to try them all!

At last! We have found our treasure!

La Chandeleur

On the second of February, France celebrated its national holiday of crêpe making "La Chandeleur".  This ancient celebration marks the possible end of winter and the return of light. To mark this event, the entire nation heads to the kitchen to celebrate the oncoming of spring by making crêpes. Willy LeBihan, Founder of L'École Française du Maine, embraced his Brittany origins, the region of France famous for their crêpes, as he prepared over 100 crêpes for the students. Everyone, teachers included, enjoyed eating crêpes last Friday !
