Class 2 learned about the New Year celebration of the 3 Kings in France.
This takes place each year on the first Sunday after New Year. It is called La Fête des Rois or Épiphanie.
This celebration centres round a king or queen chosen for the day and a cake La Galette de rois (the cake of Kings). We tasted some French cakes and a king was chosen from a lucky number on a plate.
We also made crowns and decorated them. The king chose a winner. His word was final!
