Over the summer, a group of excited Year 7 girls set off for the beautiful Château de la Baudonnière in Normandy to practice the French they had learnt within the classroom.
The château, which is situated in the region of La Manche in Normandy, has 90 acres of its own grounds which made for a perfect location for the girls to take part in a series of activities such as orienteering, archery, an assault course, bread making and rafting. All of the games and activities organised were in French and the girls were encouraged to speak the language at every opportunity. Monday was spent enjoying a cultural day at the mouth of the Couesnon River when they made the short trip across to the island of Mont Saint Michel for a picnic. There was room for further games and activities at the Château on their final day, culminating with an entertaining talent show in the evening.
The girls returned to school on Wednesday evening having enjoyed three full days of French fun and games.
