Year 6 French Trip

Year 6 French Trip

On Friday 22nd April Year 6 returned safe and sound from another highly successful study trip to La Maison Claire Fontaine in France. They enjoyed a combination of active French lessons and a series of unique activities which included circus training, making mosaics, sculpture, purchasing and preparing lunch, a high level tree adventure and a visit to the pilgrimage town of Vézelay and prehistoric caves. They also enjoyed a variety of evening activities, most notably a disco and a French restaurant experience.  Where possible, activities were conducted in French and everybody made excellent progress in the grasp of the language.  Surprisingly, the opportunity to consume escargots was greeted with great enthusiasm in some quarters!  Everybody had a superb time. “Merci beaucoup” to all the staff at La Maison Claire Fontaine and to our excellent driver, Malcolm.
