Normandy Visit - Year 8 Futures Week (26th - 30th June 2017)
In June, we took forty-five students from Year 8 to Château du Tertre in Normandy.
We had a busy week, speaking lots of French and taking part in a range of activities both on site at the PGL centre and out and about.
During their stay, students had to compete numerous French language tasks, such as interviewing people in the street and shopping for lunch in the market. They learnt how to make croissants at a local bakery and some were even brave enough to try snails!
We visited the towns of Ambrières les Vallées, Evron, the historic medieval town of Fougères and the beautiful Mont St Michel.
On site, we enjoyed campfires, evening entertainment and took part in the trapeze and sensory trail tasks.
Our students were a credit to our school and clearly learnt a lot from the experience.
“This week has been amazing and I have made so many memories I could never forget. I have met new people, improved my French and visited some awesome places. Thank you so much for this week for it has been such an amazing experience that I will always remember. It has been one of the best weeks of my life with my friends and teachers doing fun activities that I have enjoyed so much. “
“My favourite part of the trip was Mont St Michel because it was an historic and eventful activity as it contained many sights and shops.”
“I had an amazing time we spoke loads of French and had a great time!”
“I have enjoyed seeing the views in Normandy and meeting all the people who live there.”
