France 2017 Day 2

Day two began with pain au chocolat and croissants, plus other delicious breakfast options. Before we left for Boulogne the children took part in a variety of team games: frisbee and dodgeball were enjoyed by everyone. After a short journey, we arrived at Becasuc Sweet Factory where we watched and took part in the sweet making process. In the shop we practised our French when some of us purchased some of the artisan sweets.

 

We had an alfresco lunch by the beach; the baguettes were enjoyed by all the children. Whilst the children were busily occupied creating beach art an inquisitive seagull exchanged a piece of orange rope for a leftover baguette much to the amusement of all.

 

When we arrived to the old town of Boulogne, we walked through the gate and under the walls to get to the creperie. The children were able to choose their topping and drink, practising their French as they did so. We then walked off our crepes, exploring the top of the city walls. Stunning view of the sea and surrounding city were enjoyed by all. On our way back to the coach we spent a moment observing and discussing the Boulogne war memorial.

 

This evening the children are practising their French numbers by participating in Lotto (French bingo) at the chateau. We are looking forward to more adventures tomorrow. Of course Barnaby Bear joined us on all of our exciting excursions. Can you spot him in our photos?

 

Bonne nuit!
