14/11/19 A visit from Claude Monet

The Bethlem and Maudsley Hospital School took part in a cross curriculum learning session today.

A multi-stimulating morning where our focus was to practise our french language skills..

The children had help with their french from a surprise visit from Claude Monet the artist himself (authentically portrayed by Bespoken's Greg.) Greg  taught us all about Impressionism and what inspired Monet's wonderful paintings.

The children practised their french skills by welcoming Monet to the school and learning about the different colors in French.

We celebrated french culture by tasting french delicacies at snack time and then created some still life impressions inspired by the work of Monet.
