In French, Year 5 learnt about the Fête des Rois (kings’ day) which is celebrated in France with a special cake. Inside the cake is hidden a small china ornament (une fève) and whoever is lucky enough to find this becomes king for the day. Year 5 had fun celebrating with their own version of the special cake and, true to French tradition, the youngest person in the group hid under a table to say who should receive each slice to ensure there was no cheating. Our lucky kings for the day wore their badges with pride and enjoyed the royal privilege of sitting in the Year 5 ‘best seats in the house’ and going to the front of the lunch queue. Whether they found the fève or not, everyone got to have their cake and eat it.
