France trip 2013

So, here we are having survived - and even enjoyed - our first day in France! We set off at the unearthly hour of 5am, with 33 VERY excited children and 5 slightly nervous (!) members of staff for a twelve hour trip first down to Dover, then through the channel tunnel and then through France to Paris, arriving finally at about 4.15pm local time.
The children all enjoyed settling into their rooms, unpacking and making their beds before having time for a tour and a run around before tea. After tea, Jane, our evening activities leader, ran the legs off all the children by leading them in a range of relay races, thus ensuring (desperately hope the teachers!) a good night's sleep to be had by all!
Look out for more updates tomorrow!
