Here is the start of our Flickr book for Strasbourg 2016. Not much to report from today other than it was a long day! Made amazingly good progress in the night and we were down at Dover early. We had a bit of a wait until our ferry to Dunkerque but the ferry crossing was reasonable. It is and always will be a long journey over to Strasbourg. We stopped for a picnic lunch in Luxembourg just avoiding the rain and then set off again. Our progress was delayed by 2 traffic jams but we eventually arrived here just before seven. Quick drop off of bags in rooms before tea. We were all very tired tonight so decided to leave exploration of Strasbourg until tomorrow morning. Showers, chill time with some tunes from Mr Pierce Williams (he was in his element) and then bed! Bonne nuit! Strasbourg 2016 Flickr book
Ok so it is 4.20 in the morning. The roads have been incredibly quiet. So much so that we could be mega early for our ferry. Why am I still awake you ask? Seems like some of these pupils are too cool for sleep. To us somewhat older teachers, who need our sleep, this is a form of torture.
We stopped at Peterborough on the way down where predictably all pupils piled into McDonald’s. Chicken nuggets at quarter to one in the morning? Of course.
We stopped at Birchangar services to pick up our driver Duncan. We stopped for fuel near Gillingham. And still the sleepless teenagers march on. We are going to have some seriously tired and crotchety people later, mark my words.hmmmm…
As I write this, there is about an hour and a half before I set off to go down to Thirsk School to go off on the Strasbourg trip. As usual my mind is running overtime and I am hoping that everything is packed! We hope to update you on here with photos and news from our trip so please call back here. Also check out Thirsk School on Facebook for our updates too. Merci!
Bonjour 7JW. Today we will be starting a new topic. But what is it about? Look at the word cloud below and in the back of your books in rough, try to find at least 5 words that you know how to say in French (or go for 10 if you are feeling brave today), write them down, then try to guess what the topic for the next few weeks is.
The following link goes to an excellent website that has some interactive reading challenges on them. Great to keep your vocab ticking over!
