Year 6 residential 2018

Monday

Bienvenue en France ! Well, we have arrived safe and sound after a long but relatively easy journey. The weather over here is a warm 28 degrees and we have settled comfortably into our accommodation. After dinner, we ventured out onto the terrace to wish Geroge a happy 11th birthday and enjoy a piece of birthday cake. We are looking forward to our French experience and will fill you in tomorrow. Good  night. Love from Year 6. x

Tuesday

Good morning Almondsbury! We were all up and ready for breakfast at 08:00 and then headed out for our town trail and market place shopping in Brie Comte Robert. We were eager to try out some of our French and spend our euros! Then a quick 10 minute journey took us to the massive Carre Four super market! Wow! We have never seen so many delicious pastries and gateaux!

  

After returning to the chateau for some lunch, we participated in our group activities of abseiling, wall climbing archery and a sensory trail. This was all done during a torrential tropical downpour! Mrs Vicary and Mr BM were slightly wet!

Our final trip for the day was to the snail farm where Phillipe enthralled us with facts about snails…in French! Thankfully our PGL leader Sam, Mrs Starr and Mr Allen were there to help translate. And now we are finally ready for bed. Bon nuit! Love Y6. xx

Wednesday

It was an early rise this morning (07:00) as we prepared for our journey into Paris. We had our yummy breakfast of croissants and pain au chocolat and set of for the city of love. Once we fought our way through the crazy Parisian drivers, the Eiffel tower loomed in front of us. It was amazing! We passed successfully through security and climbed the 700 steps to the second level. We were all so impressed with the views. Then we sat by the Seine and ate our packed lunch. The Musee d’Orsay was our next stop where Mr Smith regaled us with facts about the statues and paints. Then we journeyed lazily down the Seine on a Bateaux Parisian taking in such sites as the Grande Palace, Assemblee Nationale and of course Notre Dame. A final quick coach ride around the Arc de Triomphe and down the Champs Elysees, and then we headed back to the Chateau for our dinner and Crepe making.

 #

Thursday

The day had finally arrived! We were off to Disneyland Paris (after morning yoga of course!). Many rides were conquered and a lot of ground covered (at the pace of Mr Smith!). And to top of a magical day, a disco to finish our France experience.
