France Trip - March 2020
The penultimate day in France was much like the others....action packed! The children have certainly been busy today and have had high spirits even though the weather has been a little soggy. Today, we started by visiting Wellington Quarry before visiting some trenches. This helped the children understand and reflect on their history topic from the previous term. We finished our day visits at Vimy Ridge, one of the battle grounds during WW1. The children have thoroughly enjoyed our trips out this week.
The children all came back and got ready for the evening activity - our final night disco! The children are looking forward to celebrating their week together in style on the dance floor! The children have throughly enjoyed reading all of the emails that have been sent so thank you for sending them in. Tomorrow, we start our trip back to London after a short stop off at the market. See you tomorrow!

Another day and another action packed one. Today, the George Eliot group started their day making some delicious crepes - yum yum! Everyone certinanly enjoyed eating them. There was some healthy competition between staff too. Later on, the children played some football and games and had some free time on the beach. They had the opportunity to practise their French when playing 'French bingo'. Sumaya (6H) was the worthy winner - Well done Sumaya! Tonight, the children are looking forward to scrapheap challenge after dinner and then a good rest. Ready to do it all again tomorrow.
If there are any other parents/carers that have not sent an email to their child, it would be great if they could do it tonight or tomorrow please. Children have loved reading them - the email address is below. We are also having difficulty putting up photos due to the fact some parents have not given written permission for school to share photographs of their children on our website. If you have not done this, please call into the school office tomorrow to give written permission. We can then hopefully share some photos.

The children slept well after their long day travelling and are getting used to their surroundings. Year 6 have had a busy action-packed day today with trips to Dieppe, the beach and to do some shopping. But that was not all...finishing their excursions at the goat farm - an outing loved by all. The children are now back at the chateau, having some dinner and about to embark on ‘Team Tech’ - vehicle making as a team.
Thank you to those parents/carers who have already sent emails to children. It would be great for everyone to receive an email. The email address is:
