Grade 5 – Le French May
Did you know that this year marks the 20th anniversary of the French May in Hong Kong? This is a city-wide festival of French culture, cinema, performances, music and art. In recognition of this event, the grade 5s will collectively hold an exhibition displaying a variety of French food, fashion, culture, music, art and much more. How to proceed you ask? Working in small groups of 2, 3, or 4, you will chose an area (ex. gastronomie, art, music, fashion, touristic monuments in France, French cities, restaurants etc.) where you want to find out more. Narrow your topic. (ex. music – Yannick Noah, Mylene Farmer, MC Solaar). Investigate. Sort out your findings. Going further, what else can you share? Is there something you could compare your finding to? Brainstorm how you could present this information to attract and engage your audience. Exhibition date: Friday May 18. Level 6 Cantine. 9h45 to 10h45. Invite your teachers. Invite your parents. Invite your friends. C’est le French May!
