Year 6 en France

Elmhurst School for Boys

11th June 2015

The summer has come around again so quickly! Last Friday was time for Year 6 to set sail (on the Eurotunnel) to France. We had the usual early departure with some rather bleary-eyed boys, but they soon woke up to notice that they were on the other side of the channel, an hour ahead and driving on the right hand side.

The boys ate their way through the day, starting off with ordering all the ingredients for their French ‘pique-nique’. We tried different sorts of ham, cheese and paté and some lovely ‘fruits exotiques’! On to the café for dessert and to write our postcards home and order our drinks from ‘le barman’.

We finished the day with a tour of the spectacular gothic cathedral in the centre of Saint Omer, where we came across a very interesting exhibition of local artists’ sculptures and paintings. We were lucky enough to see one of the artists there and I was able to translate her explanation of the Japanese technique called ‘raku’.

The trip would not have been possible without the help of Mr Littlebury who accompanied us on the trip. Also, a huge thank you to Monsieur Padfield and Monsieur Harrington for doing all the driving, and Monsieur Cater for his general helpfulness and good humour!
