French Trip February 2017

A group of 39 girls from Years 8, 9, 12 and 13 spent five days in Normandy during February half-term.  We stayed in a study-centre where the girls participated in activities such as bread-making, archery, circus-skills and photogramme (making photos without a camera).  All the instructors spoke only in French, so the girls were pleased to be able to follow their instructions and to learn new vocabulary.  There were also excursions to the local market (where the girls had to buy the most unusual thing they could find, won by a foot-long black radish), to a caramel-producing farm, to the famous Mont St Michel and to a World War 2 the way they really made an effort to use their French.
