The reason it’s the “end of year” celebration is because in France the end of the school year is in July. But anyway, back to the normal celebration stuff. The school had been practising for the celebration all term with Ollie’s class doing gymnastics and singing while my class were practising homework-excuse jokes, singing, drums, guitar, and recorder.
Finally the day came and we did one run through of the show which took up the whole morning (which was a practice without the parents). After lunch came the real thing with the parents. The first act was gymnastics from Ollie’s class, then recorder from my class (I didn’t have a recorder though so I just whistled).
Then bike riding from some of Ollie’s class mates and they did tricks like lying down on their tummies on the bikes when the teacher/principal called stuff to the bike riders like “derriere” and “devant” and “acote”. Then singing from my class and Ollie’s class.
And I’ll skip the rest cos most of it’s boring. Anyway, the crowd loved it, they were always taking photos or clapping or commenting, they just totally loved it.
At the end there was a flash mob dance. Everyone, including some parents and teachers got up and danced.
