Year 7 French trip - day 1
After a very early start, we arrived in Poole in plenty of time for the ferry. The crossing was good and quite calm, and the sun was shining when we arrived in Cherbourg. Our first stop was the 360 degree cinema in Arromanches, where we saw some astounding and moving footage of the D-Day landings. In the background of the photo are some of the famous Mulberry Harbours, whch allowed Arromances to be used as a temporary port to bring in troops and supplies for the attack. We finally arrived at La Grand' Ferme just in time for dinner, and pupils just had time to settle into their rooms and have a tour of the site before going to bed for a much needed sleep!
