Tuesday

Tuesday: Bonjour!! We all slept soundly last night and woke at the reasonable time of 07:15. Before heading to breakfast, all of our rooms had to undergo the dreaded Ofsted style room inspections. The criteria was quite demanding and many of us were in the category of 'requires improvement'! However, it is a learning curve and we will be more prepared to ensure we reach 'outstanding'.

After breakfast we boarded our coach and travelled into the market town of Brie-Compt-Robert. There we explored the ruins of the old Chateau and trekked around the town before heading to the market place to spend our well earned Euros on quality market nick-knacks.

   

  

  

  

  

With our gifts purchased from the market, it was time to move onto Carre Four and experience a French hypermarket. It was huge (even bigger than Asda at Cribbs!). We observed the French delicacies and many live seafood items. But our ultimate goal was to seek out and buy French sweets!

  

  

  

  

  

After returning to the Chateau and eating lunch, we then embarked upon conquering some challenges abseiling, wall climbing, archery and team building skills.

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

And finally, our visit to the snail farm.

  

Achievements of the day: Congratulations to Finley T who fought his way to the top of the wall to ring the bell and Max (aka Maxi Taxi) for a bulls-eye! 

Interesting fact to know: If you ever need an interpreter on a farm, never fear, Jack can speak sheep!

Goodnight all. x

    A little worried that the pictures of Harry K are all by the fish counter. I'm hoping that he is not going to try and bring one home. Looks like you are all having a great time. Xx Emma
