En Vacances!

Year 7 pupils enjoyed a wonderful week in France. We looked forward to receiving their daily updates!

“Bonjour! We have arrived safely in our lovely accommodation in Paris. It was a long journey but we were very excited to use the Eurotunnel and it felt a little strange being on a coach on the wrong side of the road!”

“Bonjour! It’s been a busy, busy day today! We started at the Parfumerie Fragonard and are now experts on perfumes and scents. We decided to have lunch with a view near the glass pyramid of the Louvre before walking all the Champs Elysées where we shopped till we dropped…but finished off with climbing all the way up the Arc de Triomphe! What a view!”

“Bonjour! Today has been yet another busy day! Unfortunately, due to a national strike in France, the Eiffel Tower was closed! But we still had fun taking pictures. We enjoyed a lovely cruise on the Seine and saw lots and lots of monuments and bridges. We tried some pancakes and then explored the Musée d’Orsay, trying to find as many paintings and sculptures on Mme Clayton’s big quiz!”

“Bonjour! We are on our way back! We stopped to enjoy a private tour of ‘behind the scenes’ of the Stade de France and stayed in the jail for just a few seconds!”

It certainly was an action-packed few days!
