Year 8 returned from a week in Brittany.
They stayed in a large gite in Beuzec Cap Sizun, in Finistere, and took part in
a variety of activities.
They visited the fishing port of Audierne, spent a day
in the Ville Close in Concarneau where they had lunch in a restaurant
(Coquilles Saint Jacques, Boeuf Bourgignon, Crepe), visited l’Ile de Sein and
on Friday shopped in the market in Quimper in groups of three. With the food
they bought, that evening they prepared their meal and presented it in French.
An afternoon’s sailing and an excursion on a river boat to Pont Aven rounded
off a wonderful week. They spent a good hour each evening writing their
journals in French and also had language lessons.
All pupils enjoyed their
continental breakfast of croissants, pains au chocolat and baguettes and Julie
cooked mussels and snails one evening! Altogether it was a super week much
enjoyed by all.
