Year 6's trip to Chateau De La Baudonniere, Normandy, for 5 days of fun filled activities, speaking French and visiting the historic D-Day landing beach at Arromanches. It's an annual trip and the boys love it!

We are all awake and have started to pack our suitcases. We are heading to a market this morning then we will start the homeward journey.
Friday 3rd May
There are quite a few sleepy heads this morning!
After a breakfast of croissants and hot chocolate the groups headed out on activities - assault course, canoeing & bread making. The weather was lovely today. We have learned about cider making at the chateau and been on a treasure hunt.

What a beautiful day here in Normandy. We headed to Arromanches where we spent the morning at the war museum, followed by a picnic lunch then we explored the D-Day Landing beach and the remains of the Mulberry Harbour - the boys enjoyed seeing first hand what they had learned about in class. After a little bit of shopping we visited the 360 degree cinema, where we watched a film about the 100 Days Battle of Normandy.
It has been a barbecue for dinner this evening - now off to play aeroball and boules.

This afternoon saw some of us canoeing, bread making and proving we were Robin Hoods in archery. There's been a change in our archery championship - Charlie was amazing this afternoon! At tea time we were given the chance to sample escargots, and lots of us enjoyed them!
