Years 7 and 8 in Normandy

Wednesday 5.00pm

Years 7 and 8 have had a great day in Normandy.  After spending the morning at the D-Day Museum in Arromanches they visited the British War Cemetery in Bayeux and the beautiful and impressive cathedral where the Bayeux Tapestry was originally displayed.  The children were impeccable and the staff were very proud to receive lots of praise from members of the public. The weather has been changeable but has not damped spirits!  This evening they have a treasure hunt ‘photomystère’ at the Chateau.

 

Wednesday 10.00am

Last night’s French Soiree was fabulous and very funny although les escargots were not very popular!  This morning Years 7 and 8 are visiting the D-Day Museum in Arromanches and this afternoon they are off to Bayeux to see the tapestry and a war cemetery.

 

Tuesday 11.00am

Our senior pupils really enjoyed their visit to Le Mont Saint Michel and were really impressed at how atmospheric it looked in the evening.  After a good night’s sleep and pain au chocolat for breakfast two groups went to visit the farm and do aeroball and while the others were taking on the mud assault course.  It is the French Soirée this evening which includes escargot tasting!

 

Monday 6.00pm

Both the archery and bread baking proved very popular this morning with Years 7 & 8. This evening the group visited amazing Mont St Michel. After posing on the beach for photos the children enjoyed having a tour and doing some shopping.

Monday 9.00am

In Normandy, Years 7 and 8 are excited to be starting their activities today. Archery and bread making, with all instructions in French, are on the agenda for this morning and this afternoon they will be trying orienteering. This evening is one of the highlights of the week, a trip to the Mont St Michel.

 

Sunday 4.00pm

Years 7 and 8 have just arrived at Le Château de la Baudonnière. They had a great crossing. It was calm and sunny and everyone enjoyed watching the Minions film. The sun was still shining as they arrived, and the group are now settling in and getting to know the Château. They are all looking forward to supper tonight!
