French Breakfast 22nd June 2012

Thank you so much to all the parents who braved the intermittent rain on Friday morning for our final French breakfast of the year. We were able to raise lots of money for future French trips by selling the usual breakfast of croissants, pains au chocolat, jus d'orange, chocolat chaud, thé and café. Many thanks to Mrs Groom and her team and to all the staff who kindly helped out. I particularly enjoyed hearing Mr Jones playing La Marseillaise on the trombone and trying out some of the French he learned on our trip to the Château. Our next breakfast will be in September.

Prep 5: Video!

Here is a video montage of some of our photos from the French trip. There are so many lovely photos I was spoilt for choice! I hope you enjoy it!

Prep 5: Un grand merci!

I have just uploaded some more photos, including some photos taken from the children's own cameras, so click on the slideshow on the right if you would like to have a look at them. There are some more to follow, as I know Mrs Martin took lots during the week.

Looking again at all the fantastic pictures made me keen to say a big thank you, first of all to Mr Jones and Mrs Martin, whose support and advice were invaluable over the week and whose lovely company helped make the trip so much fun.

Thank you also to the Château staff who as always were welcoming, patient and extremely helpful throughout the week.

My biggest thank you is to the children of 5D and 5M, who made us laugh so many times and made the whole week worthwhile. I hope they have come home full of confidence in their ability to understand and speak French. I am very proud of how well they looked after one another and worked so well in their groups to make all the activities such a success, even when they were exhausted! It was a pleasure to take them, and I look forward to taking 4W and 4C this time next year!
