Wisbech Grammar School  2nd Form pupils head out to France for Easter Holidays

Wisbech Grammar School  2nd Form pupils head out to France for Easter Holidays

First, we went to the market and bought lots of stuff. Mrs Neighbour set us the “one euro challenge”, where we had to barter and find an interesting object for a euro or less.

The winner was David, who bartered in order to reduce the price of the lettuce he wanted to buy to one euro.

 We then made our way to Bayeux Tapestry where we walked round the horse shoe shaped weave. An electronic guide helped us to understand the tapestry and the history. We got to learn more about The Battle Of Hastings in 1066.

We then had lunch in the nearby park. Batterie de Maisy was interesting because we learnt about WWII and the German Trenches, Weapons and Bunkers. Dan was a very good tour guide to have!  (He wasn’t electronic).

Our final destination was the D-Day landing beach (Omaha), in Arromanche. We went to a 360 degrees cinema which was showing a 20 minute footage of the war. Mr Jestin was kind enough to buy the group an ice-cream each after Mr Chapman’s mini history lesson. 

We went back to the Chateau to have tea (snails and frog legs for starters and chicken for main) and then got ready for our disco.

 Signing off now because it’s Disco Time...
