To celebrate the French tradition of Epiphany on 6th January, Class 4 celebrated with a traditional ‘galette des rois’ or ‘cake of kings’, to mark the arrival of the wise men in Bethlehem.
Rather like a sixpence in a Christmas pudding, a charm or figurine is hidden in the cake. The finder of the charm is crowned King or Queen, and this will bring them good luck in the year to follow.
Our lucky finders were Queen Amelia and King Sam! Jacob was very pleased to find that ‘galette des rois’ is one of the few French foods that he likes!
