Language and Culture adventure for JuniorsNovember 8th, 2016
During half term a group of Form I and II boys spent an action packed few days in Normandy to improve our knowledge of French language and culture whilst visiting some historic places. Visits relating to World War Two included the landing beach at Arromanches, an American military cemetery where over 9,000 soldiers are buried, and a German gun emplacement overlooking the Channel. We also went to Mont St Michel where a guide led us on a walk across the moving sands in the bay. We were all told to keep moving to avoid sinking in the quicksand as many English invaders had done before us!
On Saturday morning we enjoyed practising our French when sampling local specialities at the market. One evening we ate crêpes in a local crêperie and on another we sampled snails. It was a great trip and we came home tired, but full of joie de vivre!
