Adventure in the sun.

We started the day with some delicious croissants for breakfast and then we headed to our morning project groups. We played some games to warm-up and then we learned all the language we’d need to create our piece of media. One group made fantastic films about a crazy French café.

Arrival at camp.

We made the journey this evening all the way from Dundee to Lendrick Muir. When we arrived, we were greeted by our mentors in French and were shown to our rooms for the next 5 days. The building is really cool!

Then we had a presentation all about the centre and met our mentors for the week. We played some games like ‘ninja’, zap and the toilet paper game where we had to tell our mentor lots about ourselves in French. Now our mentors know us really well!

A sporty end to the week.

We started this morning with everyone getting packed and ready to go home. Everyone said that they absolutely loved Capture the Flag so we decided to have another game – P7a vs P7b. Everyone had lots of fun and the game ended with one win each!DSCF4177

Then we had an Olympic Games and we had team Ecosse, team France and team España. We had relay races, sack races and even a tug of war.

After lunch it was time to watch the pirate films we had made this week, see all the photos from of us doing the activities and get our certificates. Everyone has a special ‘camp’ name in French or Spanish to remember something they were great at throughout the week. They also got an Articulate t-shirt too. The campers asked lots of the mentors to sign them!

Everyone had an amazing time this week and the mentors were so proud of everything the campers achieved. We wish everyone an amazing time at secondary school next year!

Thank you so much for being part of such a great week with us.

Ending the evening in Hawaii!

This morning we started our day with pancakes for breakfast and took part in Nelly’s warm-up which was like the French version of the Hockey Cockey.

The superhero group were busy creating fantastic superheroes, learning about super homes, competing in lots of challenges requiring super human speed and strength and of course, creating amazing comic books in French.

We started the afternoon with a game of rounders or football as the weather was so great and we just wanted to be outside. Then we started our treasure hunt. First, we had to win points by competing against the mentors. We had to jump farther than Iñigo or hammer our nail in quicker that Joséphine. We were really good and won lots of points.

Then we set out with our maps to find our challenge locations. We had to work as a team to cross a swamp, create a piece of Van Gogh’s art, and even use maths and French to solve a Spanish riddle.

The winners of the treasure hunt were ‘Warriors of Ecosse’ who found the French and Spanish really quickly.

Tonight we had a barbecue which was delicious. Thomas was working hard to make our burgers and we had vegetable kebabs and halloumi cheese too.

After it was party time! We had a Hawaiian party and photo booth. We had some limbo and races with our giant inflatable whale and dolphin. It was a great night to end the week.

We are so sad that tomorrow is the last day but we still have a busy morning in store. We know that there will be lots of parents that will be super happy to see their amazing children again.

À demain. ¡Hasta mañana!
