Year 7 Study Visit to Normandy June 2019
More than 260 Year 7 pupils are looking forward to taking part in a study visit to Normand in June 2019. As a school we have been visiting Normandy for many years but in 2019 every Year 7 study visit who takes part in this visit is going to be linked with a French pupil of the same age. Our students have already sent a letter and Christmas card to their pen pal and we have already received postcards from France. We are hoping that every pupil will have the opportunity to visit a French school and attend some lessons. In addition we visit a number of World War 2 landing beaches and monuments, such as at Arromanches, Gold Beach and Merville. We visit a goat farm, sweet factory and do a number of activities together such as bowling. On one day students take part in a ‘market mission’, whereby they are given some Euros in order to buy their lunch, prepare it in a group and do a presentation in French to the rest of the group. Our hope is that all Year 7 students have an authentic experience of France, improve their French, gain more self-confidence and have fun!
