After a very musical wake-up and a delicious breakfast, we began the day with a forest construction project. The teams had to build an Eiffel Tower from things they could find in the forest. They were amazing, very high and really beautiful. We were so impressed!
Then we went climbing and took archery classes. We had lots of fun climbing the challenging walls, trying our hand at bouldering and learning to aim at ‘la cible’ with our bows and arrows. We had lots of fun (and learned lots of vocabulary along the way). There was also a little art workshop available with Nérike for those a little daunted by heights.
After lots of pizza for lunch, we had our first language classes where we learning something new. We learned how to talk in the past in French and had lots of practice. We then put our learning into action and made some silly news reports. We wrote scripts, got our costumes ready and filmed our work. There was some great French going on and some really crazy news stories.
After a French dinner of coq au vin or boeuf bourguignon, we had a culture class on French ‘clichés’. Nérike and Florent acted out some clichés and the campers decided whether they were ‘vrai’ ou ‘faux’. Do French ladies really not shave under their arms?
Now we are watching a film in French all about children at summer camp and we have lots of fun activities in store for tomorrow. Everyone’s certainly tired out and ready for a good night’s sleep. Bonne nuit
