The New Year Tradition of the Three Kings Cake


When I worked in a French school near Nice in France, January was marked by a constant flow of Three Kings Cakes brought in by the children. Pre-break time lessons were ended early to allow time to share the cakes. The playground was filled with children wearing gold crowns and often circles of children could be seen singing ‘Jaime la galette’. The children’s enthusiasm for this fun tradition never seemed to cease. If you’re looking for an ideal way to kick-start your French lessons this January, why not recreate this tradition in your classroom?
