The Quest for the Holy Grail

A few days ago, some of our bravest knights in 6e took part in a great adventure: an escape game which took them on a quest to find the Holy Grail. They had to show how well they knew King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. They were tested on what they had learnt about chivalry. They had to solve riddles, conjugate verbs in the past, spell words correctly, etc, in order to get the four-digit combination that would enable them to unlock the chest that contained the Holy Grail. They took up the challenge and their quest was a successful and fun one !

Les Dévoreurs – Edition juin 2021

Dans le cadre du cours de Français et de la lecture des Métamorphoses d’Ovide, les 6eC ont réalisé une activité gourmande : “Les Dévoreurs”.

Après avoir choisi leur métamorphose préférée, préparé leur résumé et avis de lecture accompagnés d’une illustration d’artiste, les élèves ont investi leur cuisine ! Leur objectif : réaliser un gâteau-indice permettant de deviner leur métamorphose. Soleils pour l’histoire de Phaéton, grenouilles des paysans de Lycie, lingot d’or du roi Midas, l’ourse Callisto, ailes de la chute d’Icare ou de Céyx et Alcyone, gâteau-fleur pour Narcisse… le résultat est magnifique et donne l’eau à la bouche !
