A busy, busy few days in France for Year 6


Year 6 has just returned from an action-packed few days in France where they sampled French food and culture and practised their French language skills. 

Their first visit was to an artisanal bakery. The baker, Bruno, talked to the girls about the traditional method of making bread – all in French, of course! – and the girls were impressed to learn that people travel from far afield to come and buy the artisanal bread and pastries.

Later on in the week, the girls visited a chocolate factory and also a goat farm, where the more adventurous had a go at milking goats. A trip to the market at Le Touquet was next on the schedule; it was a wonderful opportunity for the girls to practise their French as they tried to decide how best to spend their money on presents for their families and, of course, themselves! The weather stayed fine and so the visit was rounded off with games on the lovely, sandy beach at Le Touquet. Back at base, kitted out with protective shields, they quickly learned how to master ‘Tag Archery’.

On the final evening, the girls put on a French themed ‘High March has Talent’. Madame Bugnet had the difficult task of judging the acts and, after much deliberation, first prize was awarded to the team who presented ‘Peppa Pig in France’.

All in all, the girls had a fantastic time in France and returned home with plenty to tell their parents and friends.
