Trips in MFL
In Year 7 we offer a very popular trip to The Opal Coast in Northern France. Pupils find it very rewarding to practise their French in real situations such as in a French market. They are also exposed to the many cultural differences between France and England through visiting Boulogne-sur-Mer, a real French Boulangerie, a snail farm, a sea life centre and a Chocolate factory.
In Years 9 and 10 for German we offer a long standing popular trip to the German Christmas markets. As well as being a cultural visit, it gives the children the invaluable opportunity to practise their spoken German and incorporate an out of class learning experience into their lessons and exams. It also allows them to enhance their knowledge of the language and have fun too! During the trip we visit Deutsches Eck, Marksburg castle, the fortress at Ehrenbreitstein, St Hildegard Abbey, we go on a cable car, we go ice skating ride and of course we take part in various Christmas markets.
In October for Key Stage 4 we run a Paris trip for French, during which visit the many sights and cultural experiences in Paris. We amongst others visit Notre Dame, the Pantheon, the Latin Quarter, Cité des Sciences, Champs Elysées, the Louvre art museum, Trocadero, Eiffel Tower, and we also go on a boat trip on the Seine.
