Prep 5: La Fête des Rois

Prep 5 celebrated Epiphany in the traditional French style this week with a Galette des Rois. This is a cake eaten in Northern France at this time of year made of pastry baked with a small ceramic figure inside, known as la fève. The traditional filling is frangipane but this year we had a tasty nut-free version filled with compote de pommes. We sang a song called J'aime la Galette which lists the ingredients of the cake and then watched a video of some French children singing it. In 5D, Joshua was lucky enough to find the fève in his slice and was crowned king, whilst in 5M Tallulah was queen for the day.

Bonne année à tous!
