It was a rough crossing but we are here now. The sun is out now though!

Another fantastic night on the beach: children had there first challenge: making sand castles. Here are their creative ensembles....

 

A fabulous day, sun shinning temperature high. Took a trip to Courseille market and children had a great time buying and bartering. Picnic at the beach. Then it was off to beautiful Honfleur to sketch the unique vista and visit St Catherine's church.

Had a good morning, sun splitting the stones, had an historical walk around Bierniere-sur-mer with a professional tour guide (Mr.Cantillon!) who inspired the children.

Then it was ice-cream en  Francais sitting outside the beautiful backdrop of Bayeux Cathedral.

Followed by a really enjoyable Montchamp Goat Farm experience - where the children throughly enjoyed interacting with none other than the goats.

Our evening entertainment was digging the biggest hole on Juno Beach using Thomas Excelby and Chloe Carpenter as our depth gauges! 

Another fantastic day!

Today, was a very poignant day and we are really proud of the children. We started off at Pegasus Bridge, learning about the plans and liberations needed to happen to secure the D-Day landings operation.

Followed by a lovely picnic on the banks of the Caen Canal.

We then travelled to Arromanches and had a fabulous informative talk about the Mulberry Harbour by Master Matthew Hicks (he was so informative even Mr Cantillon struggled to stay up with him). The children then watched the very moving 360 degree cinema.

From there we travelled to Bayeux Cemetery where the children paid their respect to the fallen soldiers - all very poignant.

 

Really proud of all the children and compliments every day. Home soon !
