Normandy Visit for Key Stage 3 Students

More than 50 St Peter’s High School Key Stage 3 students are looking forward to taking part in a language and cultural trip to Normandy in the October holiday. This MFL (Modern Foreign Languages) trip takes place once a year and alternates between France and Spain, and next year our students will get the opportunity to visit Malaga in Spain.

Bayeux, Normandy

Bayeux

This year’s students will be leaving for Normandy in the very early hours of Friday, 25th October, the students will travel by coach and the Eurotunnel to Calais, France, and then have a 5-hour journey to their Chateau accommodation. The 5-day trip will provide students with a fantastic opportunity to practise their French language skills, as well as experiencing the history and culture of Normandy, and of course they will get the chance to try some typical French food!

Mont St. Michel

The trip includes a packed itinerary of excursions, including the famous 11th Century Bayeux Tapestry, Bayeux Cathedral and Mont St. Michel. The students will gain a unique insight into the Second World War and the D-Day landings at Arromanches 360 Museum, which is a 360° circular cinema. They will also visit the landing beaches and visit an American Cemetery. To get an idea of French culture, students will be visiting Ferme du Lavoir, a traditional apple farm and Les Sables d’Asnelles, an artisanal biscuit maker.

The school would like to wish all the students a ‘bon voyage’. We will look forward to welcoming them back on Tuesday, 29th October and hearing about all their adventures. Watch this space for pictures!
