Year 8 French Trip
3rd Mar 2014

A number of Year 8 children wishing to really enhance their command of the French language (as well as have a lot of fun!) left for Normandy accompanied by staff at the end of last term. This annual trip is a great opportunity for the children to practice their listening and spoken skills.  The children also wrote a journal during the trip - a key element in their learning.  Mealtimes were an especially good chance to learn, practice and to re-visit basic food vocabulary and to communicate effectively!.  The group took part in a wide range of activities ranging from archery, map reading, team-building exercises, initiative games, a talent show, visits to the hypermarket and climbing and bread making. The staff were very impressed by the children's resilience, ability to work together and their consideration towards others.
