French Home and Away
French Residential Trip
On Tuesday the whole group went to the American Cemetery and one of the D Day Landing Beaches. After lunch at Arromanches, where we saw a mulberry harbour, we walked along the coast to the 360 degree cinema. That evening we had a camp fire with marshmallows and songs. On Wednesday we visited the market town of Fleurs where we shopped in a French market, bought produce for our lunch and then held a competition to prepare the best meal. That afternoon we visited Mayenne and took part in a town trail. Thursday morning saw us visiting the bakery at Ambrieires where everyone enjoyed making croissants before a picnic lunch in ‘the magic tree’. The afternoon saw us using our newly found language skills to carry out interviews with local people in Bagnoles. We had a fantastic and truly memorable time.”
French Experiences at Ashford Park
During the week we did lots of great stuff to do with France.
One day we had a workshop with Jean and Guillome who didn't speak a word of English ALL day. It was really good for us and we learnt a lot.
On the other days we did some cooking, food tasting, singing, played boules, and orienteering - all speaking French of course.
