Girls’ Prep French trip 2015 Day 2

After a delicious breakfast of croissants and baguettes, we headed off in the sunshine to Le Touquet market. The girls have really enjoyed speaking French, buying cheese, scarfs, saucisson and much more…
Next stop was free time playing on the stunning beach on miles of white sand. Fun had by all! A perfect opportunity for a photo Shoot!
Snail farmers Fabian & Sylvain were most impressed with our girls’ interest in how they farm snails, asking many questions and showing a keen interest. We were amazed at how willing the girls’ were to try snail pâte and snails in shells…. Some more successfully than others! Luckily there was some deliciously sweet homemade rhubarb jam for those who needed a little cleanse! Palates have been well and truly tested!

Y6 Girls’ Prep French trip 2015

Safe arrival in France. All going well, smooth journey, some girls experiencing the Eurotunnel for the first time.  First visit at Ambleteuse, is 2nd World War museum.  Great excitement viewing all the wonderful uniforms. They found out what ‘Liberty’ means and loved the French boutique and the artefacts were also very impressive.   Now about to watch a movie from the archives giving us an insight to life in WW2.  Girls very relaxed, long may it continue!
