An early start to a glorious French sunny day! We were all tired and slept well in fact Miss Butler has apparently never slept so well! An early petit dejeuner was fun but we had to prepare our lunch first! Parents you will be pleased to hear that by the end of the week all the children will be amazing picnic lunch makers so they will be making their own school packed lunches!
A trip to a very interesting (!) organic farm took up the morning - we learnt all about chilckens that lived on the beach and cows have no bottom teeth, Alice in particular is now a cow expert! We met all sorts of chickens, rabbits, cows and cherry trees and felt newly laid eggs. We practised so much French farm vocabulary.
Our delicious lunch was followed by an active afternoon - team building problem solving suitably challenged us all but needless to say the children were up to said challenge and , Miss Cole, some maths was included!!!! But our great adventure was to harness ourselves tightly and securely before shimmying up a telegraph pole and launching ourselves into space in the hope that we might locate a trapeze pole and swing gently amongst the treetops - well done Liberty for being a huge success, a career in the circus awaits... Well done all children, courage and team spirit was shown by all!
the evening was rounded off by a very French supper and a campfire with songs and marshmallows a-plenty.
Oh dear, what happened there? Technical glitches aside we are all having a marvellous time!
nous sommes arrives! All is well!
