6th and 7th graders met in auditorium in order to work on their creative writing skills. Thye worked in small groups.

Within a 2-hour time frame, they created stories pulling inspiration from two Magritte’s paintings: “Le Séducteur” and “Le château des Pyrénées”. They also had to incorporate at least 7 of the yearly 10 words promoted by the “Francophonie”’s Contest “Dis-moi Dix mots”. These words had been studied in class beforehand. This year, all ten words were related to the “Web” theme.
