As part of their GCSE French studies a group of Year 10 and 11 students from Hodgson Academy had a whistle stop tour of the Opal coast in September.
After a midnight departure on Thursday, the weary but excited group of students (and accompanying staff) arrived in Boulogne. Greeted by pouring rain, they bravely ventured out in search of markets and cafes in which to practise their French. The rain didn’t dampen their spirits and they sped off to their chateau to make crêpes.
The next day dawned brightly and they continued their tour of France by visiting Le Touquet market and seaside resort. This was followed by a sombre and moving visit to a World War one cemetery.
The final day was filled with even more French language activities and a visit to a chocolate making factory – delicieux!
Our Year 10 and 11 students are now much more confident in speaking French and can’t wait for another trip!
