Year 6 Trip to France

On Thursday 16th June, the children of Year 6 met up at school for a 5am departure to France, where they took part in a range of activities.
The journey to Dover was easy, however, the queues into the port were very long and unfortunately it meant that we were unable to get on our planned ferry. Once aboard, we settled down to breakfast and then a tour of the ship. Going out on deck and watching the coastline of France appear was thrilling.
We stopped for lunch in a charming French restaurant in a small village, just outside Calais, with the children eating Steak Hache et frites and with desert afterwards. This was an opportunity for the children to practise speaking French.
Our visit to a military cemetery was a poignant reminder of the sacrifice of soldiers in both world wars, and fitted in well with our Blitz, Bangs and Bombs topic from earlier in the year.
The walled town of Montreuil-Sur-Mer was our ultimate destination, to compare a medieval town in France, to the walled city of York and with Saffron Walden.
Dinner was a picnic by the Citadel in Montreuil-Sur-Mer, with the weather being perfect for a day trip.
We caught the Euro-tunnel back to England for speed, and returned tired, but happy at 10:20pm.
