What a lovely day...
A fresh morning, cold but blue skies up above! Last nights campfire was a huge success- pupils singing and dancing plus toasted marshmallows.
After another great night and great room scores very tired pupils hit the hay.
Following yet more fresh croissants for breakfast (it’s a tough life) the pupils embarked on a tour of the local town Rue. They tested their french by ordering hot chocolates in the local cafe and had ice creams...at 10.30am. They learnt all about the local churches and monuments- mostly related to the nazi occupation during WW2. Pupils loved the tour and asked very relevant questions- they then went shopping in the local supermarket, there were some questionable purchases to say the very least.
After a hot lunch pupils hopped on the bus and set off for the wheat farm. It was fantastic- pupils learnt how to weave and made their own souvenirs. They were an pleasure to take as their manners were exemplary. It was interesting to see how wheat is manipulated to create beautiful decorations.
Then...it was the snail farm. With great trepidation we set off for a taste testing experience the pupils would never forget.
To build the tension the pupils watched a slide show all about snails, and how cute little baby snails are...then we ate some. We tasted snail and pork pate, garlic snails and then home made jam (snail free).
Most pupils tasted and all were pleasantly surprised with the outcome...rubbery yet delicious. Two great trips this afternoon.
We raced home for tea- on the menu...snails and frog legs!!!!! Bon appetit.
A great day that the pupils loved and were such a credit to the school!
See you tomorrow...
