Today we visited Paris for the day. We visited the Louvre; sailed the river Sienne; danced and sang under the Eiffel Tower; took pictures and had a lovely meal at Flunch.
Kieran: has been discovered as the arcade champion. Extremely good at table football! Very close game with Mr Prosser. He said that to visit the trenches in wet weather would be a good experience as we could see what it was really like. “I liked the whole of the day… When we were under the Eiffel Tower especially.”
Emily-Jane: When were in the front of the coach singing, “an old Austrian was yodelling…” avalanche, bear, hurricane, flying pig, “are we nearly there yet?”, storm trooper, Mona Lisa, Disney!
James: when we were singing looking at the Eiffel Tower from the look-out.
Tyrone: Everything, everyone had a bit of fun with the dancing.
Thomas: “I imagined Paris being a lot prettier. To me it looks like a bunch of buildings clumped up and then there’s a few other buildings like the Louvre and the Tower.” Miss Coade agreed; she always forgets that there’s a different side to Paris… We saw that today. Great observation, Thomas.
Alex: “I liked the boat trip.”
Millie: “Singing under the Eiffel Tower.”
Kayla: “I enjoyed seeing the police chase some men…”
Ryan: “Under the Eiffel Tower Isaiah found money under his foot…”
Thomas: “I liked the Mona Lisa; it looked a lot smaller than I thought.”
Myles: “I found it funny when Jaylin saw the first statue in the Louvre…”
We have had a fabulous day today! All of the teachers were extremely impressed by all of the children. Not only the behaviour, but the effort and enthusiasm with everything was extremely good! Definitely making those at home proud I am sure.
But most importantly, we bought (between the whole year group today) a total of… 179 miniature Eiffel Towers! With Oliver and Royem adding most the contribution – 15 each!
