On Thursday, December 8, ISP's intermediate and advanced Grade 3 French students spent a morning at the L'Alhambra theatre in Paris' tenth arrondissement to see "Le Loup est revenu".
The trip was in connection with their reading program, which has included the works of French author Geoffroy de Pennart.
"Le Loup est revenu" tells the story of Mr Rabbit, who learns that his old foe Wolf is back! Familiar characters, such as the Three Pigs and Little Red Riding Hood, all come to Mr Rabbit's house to seek refuge.
The students in Grade 3 reflected on the experience in their French class:
Le 8 décembre dernier, nous sommes allés au théâtre voir « Le Loup est revenu ». Nous avons pris le car. Au théâtre il y avait beaucoup d'autres écoles. Dans la pièce il y avait plein de personnages, comme par exemple le Petit Agneau, le Loup et Chapeau Rond Rouge. L'histoire est celle de Monsieur Lapin qui a peur du méchant loup et qui reçoit la visite de ses amis. La fin est surprenante!
En classe, nous avions déjà lu cette histoire ainsi que d'autres histoires du même auteur, Geoffroy de Pennart. Ce que nous avons préféré c'est le popcorn qu'ils ont distribué pendant le repas des personnages et que c'était très drôle!
On the 8th of December we went to the theatre to see "Le Loup est revenu". We took the bus there. There were a lot of other schools at the theatre. In the play there were lots of characters, such as Little Lamb, Wolf and Little Red Riding Hood. The play tells the story of Mr Rabbit, who is scared of the bad wolf and who gets visited by his friends. The end is surprising!
In class we had already read the story, as well as other stories by the same author, Geoffroy de Pennart. Our favourite bit was when they gave out popcorn when the character were eating, it was very funny!
