School trips- week 36

During week 36 all the children enjoyed an exciting week of school trips.

Years 1-4 spent the day exploring on Wimbledon common. The children walked from school to the common where they had fun climbing trees, balancing, ball games and whittling.

Years 5-7 had a fun packed three day activity camp at Marchant’s Hill in Surrey where activities included raft-building in teams, high zip wire and fencing, not to mention evening trips to buy English sweets at the tuck shop!

          

Years 8-10 The secondary school pupils had the opportunity to get to know both Paris and each other over an exciting four day trip.
During a guided bike tour through the city, students learned more about everything from the French Revolution, The Alexander III Bridge, The Louvre and Les Invalides to Napoleon, Place de la Concorde and the Eiffel Tower. Lunch was taken at the halfway point in the Tuileries Gardens. On other days they also visited The Sacré Coeur overlooking Paris. In addition, Merete guided them around the area and explained about the many famous artists associated with Montmatre (Picasso, Van Gogh, Matisse ++) and the many famous buildings. Jenny knows Paris well and told the students about Moulin Rouge and how France, and Paris, are divided into different regions. Good dinners were enjoyed at restaurants such as La Mère Catherine, The Hard Rock Café, and also visits to traditional outdoor French cafés.
