At the end of the Lent Term Year 7 enjoyed a glorious trip to France, pupil Jamie Treatman-Clark shares their adventures.
After a day’s travelling,our adventures began with a visit tothe Caramel Factory at Isigny. Herewe learnt about the production of caramelandhad the chance to taste the different flavours before buying our favourites in the shop.The afternoonwas warm and sunny,perfect for making delicious crêpes and writing French postcards to our families. Hopefully the cards made it home and the French was quite good!
On Wednesdaywe visited theBayeux tapestries followed by a confusing treasure hunt; some of us actually got a bit lost,not mentioning any names…Lucas. After lunchwe drove toMont-St Michel, which was very interesting. Here we enjoyed abit of time to ourselves to explore the ancient village, appreciate the views and enjoy an ice-cream bought, very generously, by Miss Iqbal.
On Thursday morning, one groupjourneyedto the goats’ cheese farm to learn
about the different cheesesmade inFrance and also try a bit of ‘fromage de
Chèvre’. The other group learnt how to make bread in a local boulangerie (French
for bakery). After lunch we swapped groups before heading to the ‘hypermarché’
to round offthe week with a little shoppingbefore heading back for a disco. Good
music from Mr Baillie, even Mr Macdonald was dancing! After prizes we all
went to bed as the next morning was going to bean early start.
