Year 7 experienced the French traditional “Galette des rois” in their lesson today.

This French tradition of serving a frangipane filled tart, takes place on or around Epiphany, the twelfth day of Christmas, when the wise men visited baby Jesus, actually dates back to the 14th Century.


A ‘fève‘ (originally a bean but now tends to be a plastic trinket) is baked inside the cake and the cake is shared around the table. Whoever receives the fève is then crowned King or Queen for the day.



Sienna got lucky and was crowned as our Queen today.
