France 2017

Monday

A good journey, catching the ferry at about 2pm. Arrived at the Centre at about 7pm (French time - we are an hour ahead). Spag bol with French bread for evening meal, followed by ice cream. A walk by the sea this evening, skimming some stones on the way, followed by a bedtime story and learning to sing a French lullaby! All quiet now as I write this - a good night's sleep to set us up for a busy day tomorrow.

Tuesday

Lovely weather today for our visit to the underground city (caves) at Naours. After lunch, a walk to the windmill and a play in the park. All the children asked for their drink/ice cream at the cafe in French! Relaxing at the Centre this evening.

 

Wednesday

Hot and sunny today. A walk into the town of Cayeux this morning and cakes from the Patisserie - very yummy and sticky! The children asked for their cakes in French (with a little help from Mrs Bulmer) and the lady in the shop was really impressed with them and said they did really well. A visit to the beach at Berck sur Mer this afternoon, calling at a supermarket on the way, with fidget spinners(!) still a popular buy. Fantastic beach (huge) where we played on the sand, returning to the Centre in time for evening meal.

 

Thursday

Another very hot and sunny day at Bagatelle theme park - great fun for everyone. All packed up this evening for an early start in the morning. These children have been absolute stars this week - hopefully they've had a great time. Long journey home tomorrow - see you soon!
