School Journey - Day 3

Day 3

After a hotly contested sandcastle competition at the beach, the children practised their French at the local creperie and then devoured either their chocolate or sugar crepe in no time.

In the afternoon, the children were a credit to West Lodge with their very respectful behaviour at Etaples War Cemetery. They also enjoyed some free time, in which a three way pétanque battle between Mr Sandys, Mr Francis and Mr Weighill took centre stage. This game has quickly been adopted by staff and children alike, so expect to see a Pétanque pitch at West Lodge very soon.

In the evening, children enjoyed Forest Games, in which they had to demonstrate a high level of tactics and strategy to become winners of Mr Sandys’ much enjoyed game of Kick the Can. 

Room inspections on the whole continue to be a challenge, and you would expect scores to be going up throughout the week. It seems this year, the children have other ideas.
