Epiphany

As part of our MFL lesson, we found out about a tradition in France that takes place on the 6th January for ‘l’epiphanie’.

To celebrate the date that the 3 Wise Men visited the baby Jesus with presents, people in France eat a special cake called the ‘galette de rois’. Hidden inside the cake is a ‘santon’ which is a small porcelain statue. traditionally in France, the youngest member of the family will hide under the table and call out the names of the people in the room. Slices of cake are given to the people in the order called out and, once everyone has been served, the cake can be eaten. The person who finds the ‘santon’ in their piece of cake is the King (or Queen) and gets a crown to wear on their head.

The year 3 class had lots of fun trying out this tradition. Our youngest class member hid under the table and called out the names of all his classmates. We then all sampled the cake and 2 children found ‘santons’ in their slices. They were crowned kings!
