We have just stopped off at services on the M1 and our driver has said that we should be back slightly earlier than planned at 7pm. This is obviously traffic dependent but I will update the blog when we are closer to home. See you all soon!
We have been to the market this morning and warmed ourselves up with plenty of hot chocolate and crepes! Students spoke to stall holders and bought lots of interesting items including polar bear hats, chicken sausages and French books! Off to the caves this afternoon after some lunch at the Chateau.
This afternoon, students visited a local chocolate factory and sampled some delicious chocolates. The chocolate factory shop was also popular with lots buying Valentines presents in preparation for next weekend!
Afterwards, students visited the town of Le Touquet where they surveyed French people and even made friends with another group of French children. A great time had by all… 😊🍫❤️
It’s a cold but beautiful morning in Picardy and the sun is shining! ☀️ Students have been crawling through mud with blind folds on and are about to bravely abseil down a huge wall! Check out the photos below…
After a 2 hour delay, we are finally on the ferry! The students have been incredibly patient and impeccably behaved despite the delay. I will update the blog once we arrive at the Chateau 😀
Hello and welcome to the Picardy blog 2015! I hope you are all as excited about Friday as I am!
Please be at school for 6:30am on Friday as we will be setting off at 7:00am. I will be arriving at approx 6:15am to open the school gates. Please feel free to park at the front of school, but do leave space for the coach to exit.
Sleeping bags can go under/over seats so don’t worry about fitting them in the case. Pillows can also come on the coach too (although only a pillow case is a necessity for the trip). I doubt there’ll be much sleeping though what with all the excitement!
The weather looks cold so please pack plenty of warm layers. It does however look as though we may escape the rain and might get some sunshine 😃 fingers crossed!
Keep an eye out for updates on the blog. I will try to update daily, but it does depend on wifi access.
Happy packing and see you all on Friday! 🇫🇷
