PUPILS at Ranby House School have had a busy few weeks.
Along with parents, staff and friends they enjoyed a summer fayre which began when their headteacher David Sibson arrived in a helicopter supplied by Kuki Helicopters.
The company also arranged for a Porsche to be available for viewing - much to the delights of many of the parents.
The children were responsible for many of the stalls which included a chocolate fondue, a human fruit machine, face painting, a refreshment stall, apple bobbing and penalty shoot out.
The Ranby Parents Group ran a barbecue and also served Pimms on the lawn.
But the fun didn’t stop there. Just a few days later the younger pupils showed off their French skills in a special presentation.
Years one and two children in the pre-prep and the years three and four of the prep school demonstrated all they had been learning in the past year with Madame Quinlan in their French lessons.
Parents, family, friends and staff were all entertained by a series of short songs, poems, conversations and sketches which the children acted out in French.
Madame Quinlan said that the combination of French and drama worked very well in helping the children to acquire and practise the basic skills of pronunciation, self-confidence, organisation and communication.
