    Yes we have used them and they came to us for about 4 years running. Vive la France is excellent and very entertaining. they did have a new one too called The three mousqeteers Have I spelt that correctly?),which ihaven't seen.I would not hesitate to recommend them and the pupils loved it.I think they do a production for older pupils too. I used to get the money from the G and T fund but that is no more andwe don't have that money to spare in our department.
     
  2. We used them in September this year. Les Trois Mousquetaires was great. We did is for Year 8 and they loved it. It was useful though that one of my dept arranged ppt of the story which we went through which each class before hand.
    A very organised company. Well worth the money

    We have had them three times. Very good. i thought Vive la France was more fun than les Trois Mousquetaires. Expect some joining in, circus skills, good French. Suits late Y7 or Y8.
     
  4. We have booked them several times in the past (when we used to have some money). They were excellent: just the right mix of slapstick, juggling and humour to keep the kids engaged-highly recommended.
    Of course now we are a core subject again I'm looking at booking them for a three night run after I get my new capitation. [​IMG]
