German weather reports in primary feeder school

Staying at our feeder school Ravenscote, here is some fantastic work produced by Frau Mahler's year 6 classes. Having learned to talk about the weather, pupils had to give a weather report in German.
Here are some particularly fine examples. Aren't they wunderbar?

Here are Dan and Ben

French Exchange 2013: Paris

Today started with an early 8.00AM gathering in order to head for Paris. After a peaceful journey down, during which students exchanged stories and anecdotes from the weekend, we arrived just in time for lunch!

Once refueled, we started to walk up the famous Champs Elysées avenue (and past a certain Abercrombie store, which seemed to catch the attention of most of our girls????), ready to face the 284 steps up to the top of the Arc de Triomphe.

Thanks to some encouragement and support (even a push?) from Miss Streeter, all students made it alive!
Unexpectedly, the weather ended up being on our side and our official photographer let her talent out.




Students were then given some free time to roam the most famous avenue in the world (including the psychedelic Mercedes showroom) and we met up with them near the Abercrombie store (again?).

Our coach driver gave students a chance to tour the city and capture the most famous landmarks (Eiffel Tower, Le Louvre museum, the Assemblée Nationale palace (French Parliament), Concorde square, Académie Française, etc.) before we headed back to Lille for the last night with families.


A demain à Tomlinscote.

French Exchange Day 4: more lessons and a pancake party

Yesterday, after attending a few more lessons and watching a French comedy film - Les Intouchables - students attended a pancake party during which they bonded further with their French partners.

Once all the food devoured, they took part in different activities which they seemed to thoroughly enjoy.

Bon week-end en famille à tout le monde.
