The Petits Poussins love to hide and so does Pocoyo!

Sébastien, our mascot monkey, often likes to play the game cache-cache with the Petits Poussins as we practice our counting and verbs. Chercher [shershay] is the verb ‘to look for’ in French and Trouver [troovay] is the verb ‘to find’.  We often ask the children ‘on va chercher Sébastien?’ [ohn va shershay Sébastien]- are we going to go and look for Sébastien?

When we find him we shout coucou [coo-coo] – hiya/peek-a-boo

We just love the verb cacher [cashay].  Say it to you child and see what they do!

We use it often in the sessions with its variants…

Cache les yeux [cash layz yeuh] – hide your eyes

Cache, cache, cache [cash cash cash] hide, hide hide
