This year eight Aberdeen City primary schools once again celebrated the French Fête de la Musique which took place on Wednesday 21 June. At 10am British time (11 am French time) pupils from Heathryburn, Westpark, Broomhill, Brimmond, Mile End, Ferryhill, Fernielea and Cornhill schools sang with their French partner schools with some establishing live links via Skype or FaceTime. Brimmond School have shared their videos on their Twitter feed.
This annual singing/art event, organised with Modern Languages Curriculum Support Officers in Clermont-Ferrand, has a different theme each year. This year the theme was SunnySing and pupils learned songs in both English and in French. Schools also created ‘Sunny displays’. Jo Dillon from Brimmond School whose pupils connected via Face Time with the Ecole Artonne commented that ‘it was a great experience for the pupils and they loved it!’ A booklet and cd will be delivered to each participating school early next session.
