Wow! What a wonderful week away we all had in France. The children were well behaved and everyone that met them all said how polite and lovely they were. We got to visit some beautiful places around near to where we were staying at the Chateau Beaumont. The children got to experience a local market where they were encouraged to speak in French to the market stall sellers. The weather stayed dry all week and we managed to take part in all the outdoor activities including the zip line and archery. Also on site was a Year 15 school from Paris, our children quickly made friends and sat with them during dinner times to chat. Disco night started with a talent show, where our children showed off their fantastic singing and football talents.
After a very choppy crossing, (only one of us was sick, Mrs Kennedy) :) we arrived safely at the Chateau Beaumont, where we enjoyed our first meal of Spaghetti Bolognese
On Thursday 17th November we were very lucky to have M & M Theatrical Productions visit us. They performed an amazing show of Jack & The Beanstalk to the whole school. All the children had an amazing time and loved joining in with the singing.
On Friday 7th October School Council pupils from all the local schools were invited to meet with the Mayor of Swanley, Lesley Dyball. The meeting was held in the Council Chambers of Swanley Town Council. Lots of questions were asked regarding the running of our community, including fireworks night and who is responsible for litter picks and cleaning all the graffiti. It was a pleasant afternoon and the children were all offered refreshments, which went down a treat.
All the children made a 'Remembrance' Book for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
Mrs Kennedy made her way to London to visit Buckingham Palace where she paid our respects and laid our book & flowers down.
Please see below for the book.
