Year 6 Residential to Normandy

Having studied the D-Day landings in history, Year 6 were excited to visit the beaches of Arromanches, have a guided tour of the D-Day museum to learn about the construction of the Mulberry Harbours and enjoy the 360 degree cinema with unseen footage from WW2. Other highlights included visiting a farm where the children had the opportunity to milk the goats and taste the milk and cheese, seeing the Bayeux Tapestry and a sunny day trip to Mont-St- Michel where they explored the cobbled alleyways and had the opportunity to practise their French whilst shopping.

In the evenings the children participated in a range of fun activities from a beach scavenger hunt to a hotly contested quiz against the teachers which drew on all the knowledge the children had gained from listening to their animatrice, Coco, throughout the week. Needless to say, the children’s excellent listening skills paid off!

The children were brilliant throughout the entire trip and engaged with all the activities with enthusiasm and positivity. What a fun week!
