Liberté - Égalité - Fraternité

C'est le 14 juillet!

Today is a national holiday in France, when people remember the storming of the Bastille.
This was the beginning of the French Revolution -  the 14th July 1789.
Exactly 100 years later, in 1889, the Eiffel Tower was built.

In their French lessons today, Y3DK and Y4MS heard about the French Revolution.  They also decorated their own copies of the Eiffel tower, and painted on the tricolor colours (the French flag).
