Year 6 French Trip

4th June 19

Just before the half-term holidays, girls in Year 6 headed off to northern France for a three night stay. They were super excited as they gathered at school for the coach and as they set off they enjoyed singing songs before settling down for the long-haul and watching a movie. During their trip the girls took part in a plethora of exciting activities that had them practicing their French, improving their confidence and polishing their social skills. One of their first stops was a boulangerie where they had a workshop on croissant making. They also took a trip to an orchard where they saw how apple juice is made in the traditional way. No school excursion to France would be complete without the compulsory trip to the market to purchase food for a group picnic at the beach. They also enjoyed a trip to a WW2 museum ‘La Coupole’ where the Nazis made V2 rockets; and visited ‘Nausicca’ – the biggest aquarium in Europe.

The girls also visited their French penpals at their school and took part in their lessons including petanque with the PE teacher. On the final evening they enjoyed a fun disco and returned to Maltman’s Green on Friday afternoon absolutely exhausted from their adventure.

Some comments from the girls

“We really enjoyed France because it was an amazing experience and we got to try lots of new things. Our favourite parts were meeting and having lessons with our pen pals, going to the French market to buy food for our picnic and eating our picnics on the beach. From sharing dorms with our friends to having 3 course meal everyday (and a 5 course meal on the last day!), the French trip was very fun overall and we will never forget how much fun we had!”

“France was the best school trip I’ve ever been on. My favourite part was “Nausicaa” ( the biggest aquarium in Europe), which had an epic gift shop! I also enjoyed the picnic which we bought ourselves. I was sad when I had to go home but soon settled back to a normal week at school.”
