What a fun and sunny first day we’ve had in France! After an early start we plunged beneath La Manche, to great excitement – some children even believed they say whales and other sea faring animals through the tunnel walls – then took a turn around the cliff tops.
It was a beautiful day and we were overjoyed to be able to clearly see our homeland across the waves. We had our lunch whilst looking back at the white cliffs. We then paid a visit to our penpals in their school. The Children were incredibly excited to be able to finally put a faces to names, and they spent a couple of linguistically challenging hours playing together and discussing school life.
Finally, we settled into the Hardelot Centre and had a wonderful 3 course dinner before a bit of playtime amongst the bluebells. After everyone had got ready for bed, the children were lucky enough to listen to 3 chapters of War Horse read by Mr. Windle. The children are now fast asleep and will be full of energy for the busy day tomorrow.
Check back tomorrow for more updates.
