I have been sharing a lot of information about French Bank Holidays recently and making videos to explain them (click here to check some of them out), but I have been increasingly aware that they are very much focused on France. However French is not just spoken in France – and far from it! I have therefore decided to so some research into the National Days of other French-speaking countries and make videos to educate about them. Here is the result  – I will be adding to this blog as each date gets closer!

This is also my contribution to helping decolonise the curriculum, as we are also learning more about why those countries are French-speaking.

I hope it helps you and your child(ren) too!
