Year 7 Germany Trip - Day Two

We've had lots of fun: coach one visited a German school nearby - which used to be a cloister and reminded us of Hogwarts. Here, our children attended several workshops in which they could practise their language skills and make friends with German pupils. It was such a success that we are hoping to include this event for all children in future!
In the afternoon they saw the Deutsches Eck in Koblenz. 
Coach two visited the pretty village of Boppard and went up on a chair lift to enjoy the loop of the River Rhine - and the play group. They then had a guided tour around Marksburg Castle. 
After a fabulous dinner of Brokkoli soup (surprisingly nice if you don't know what it is!), lovely Schnitzel, and Eis for dessert, there was a music quiz and an early night to gather our strength for the next days...
The kids are still wonderful to be with: enthusiastic, willing to try out their German skills and tasting new foods. 
Although some people will have a delayed start into Fantasialand on Thursday...
