Our Fabulous French Trip

Our Fabulous French Trip

On the 1st July two countries united! 30 lucky pupils from Year 6 had an amazing opportunity to meet French pupils from Roubaix.

We were welcomed warmly by the children and a wide range of activities were prepared for us to do.

First we chose our groups. We decided, with our new friends, what our group names would be. (E.g. Team Sheldon and Team Falcon.) We were now ready for our activities.

We played many games including: French and English words, (where we sort out what is from France and what is from England) Xbox 1 dance-off, I.C.T. and sport games (croquet, football and petanque).

Then, what really brought our two countries hand in hand was the patch-work quilt. We had to do draw something from France on a square piece of fabric (e.g. the Eiffel Tower); the French students drew something from England (e.g. the Big Ben). The square pieces were sewn together and made in to a beautiful quilt. When we were leaving a photo was taken of our quilt. The quilt was cut so half of it went to us- in England- and half to France. The quilt will forever remind us of the French’s smiling faces.

Kindly, the French parents put together an amazing lunch. All of them made food from their own cultures. We all found the foods delicious!

A special thanks to all the French pupils, parents and staff for having us. We had so much fun! And an extra thanks to Amherst Rotary Club who made a kind donation of over £250 to cover the cost of the tunnel crossing. We couldn’t have had this trip without them!
