Year 8 French Fashion Week!

Year 8 French Fashion Week!
I recently set my year 8 class a creative project in celebration of all that is la mode française (French fashion). A number of students chose to go straight to the most challenging of the three levels of tasks set.  For the Gold level, students were set the task of creating an original outfit, writing a description of it in French and then recording themselves describing it as if it was being worn by a model on the catwalk. Luxman Aravindan recorded a fantastic video of three outfits described by himself in French, including one hand-made outfit modelled by his dog!  Matilda Stevens, Louisa Winslett and Briana Ciuhureanu also created amazing outfits and described them in good French.
Many students opted for the Silver challenge to write a review of three outfits from the Met Gala for French Vogue magazine. There were some impressive and well-designed articles which really showed that the students had put in a lot of effort and stretched their French knowledge, including work from Poppy Silver and Manel Dahmani. The Bronze challenge also generated some remarkable posters presenting the work of French fashion designers such as Dior, Chanel, Louis Vuitton.
Bravo to all who rose to the challenge and received reward points for their fantastic creations.
