In March we went on our annual trip to Normandy with pupils from years 7+8. It was an action packed trip which included many opportunities for the pupils to practise their French and observe French culture.
We had frogs' legs and snail tasting, a visit to a cider farm with apple juice tasting. We visited the beautiful Mont Saint-Michel along with the abbey and Alligator Bay. The boys enjoyed bowling, mini golf, football and a movie night during the evenings. For some the highlight was the trip to Arromanches to learn about the D-Day landings and watch a film about this at the 360 degree cinema.
Joe Benstead said "I liked the D-Day beaches as I love learning about history and this time period interests me. I enjoyed buying gifts there using my French and buying War memorabilia."
Corey Senior said "I enjoyed the cider farm and learning about how the apples from the orchards are used to make different products such as apple juice and cider. It was fascinating."
The château as always was a welcoming venue and the glorious sunshine really made it a special trip for us all.
