Years 5 and 6 enjoyed their week long residential at Le Chateau du Broutel in Rue, Northern France.
The children took part in many activities designed to enhance and familiarise their French speaking and listening; a visit to a Cow Farm, Snail Farm (where of them were brave enough to try the delicacy), Supermarket and Local Traders Market and Sweet Shop. They also enjoyed a sunny afternoon on the beach in Berck-sur-mer, with buckets and spades and a game of rounders.
There was also a History element to their trip as they visited the Somme, and particularly enjoyed their guided tours around the Albert Museum and Newfoundland Centre.
The staff were very impressed with the children and how they conducted themselves during the week; we also had many compliments from locals about the exceptional behaviour of the children. A huge thanks must go to Madame Cotton for organising another very successful visit.
