French Trip Day 3

02 Oct 2014

Culture Vultures!

 We started day 3 by visiting the British cemetery at Bayeux on a crisp autumnal morning in Normandy. The children’s understanding from yesterday’s visit to the landing beaches was clearly enhanced by this visit and they made some thoughtful insights. We then went on to visit the cathedral in Bayeux where the children were impressed by the scale and detail of the building.  We finished the morning with a trip to the market which gave the children a further opportunity to utilise their French and converse with the locals in their purchasing!

In the afternoon the children participated in team building activities back at the Chateau. The children really had to use their initiative and listen to each other in order to complete set group tasks. Team work and camaraderie were the order of the afternoon and every played their part which was wonderful to see.

The group continue to really enjoy their time in France, and we now look forward to Thursday!
