Twice a year, fifth and sixth graders at FASNY get together for multidisciplinary, inter-grade activities. On March 28, their second meeting featured pursuits in a variety of subjects.
Students began by taking part in a math contest on Kahoot!—the digital, game-based learning platform. They also celebrated Printemps des poètes, an annual French poetry event whose theme this year is l'ardeur (zeal or fervor), by sharing poems they had studied with their teachers.
In addition, a few students got to meet and speak with the French national education inspector, Madame Sophie Beaumont, who was at FASNY to attend a conference on bilingualism that was hosted by our school.
