Year 5 en France

Last week Year 5 enjoyed a three day trip to Normandy in France. After leaving school at 5am, and travelling via Portsmouth, they arrived on the northern coast of France. They were very busy – visiting a biscuit factory,  Bayeux to see the tapestry and spend some euros in the market, a tour of Pegasus Bridge and a quiet time of reflection at Ranville Cemetery. They competed their trip with a visit to a cheese factory and tasting, and enjoy a tour of a farm.  They stayed in a wonderful traditional gite in Clinchclamps sur Orne with Mathieu, our generous host. The children all had the opportunity to try out their French and listen to natives speaking. The weather was kind and all the children were a credit to Lyndhurst School. Our addition member of the group was none other than Lyndhurst Bear, sporting his own cap and rucksack – check out his blog for his view of his travels and his first time abroad!
