This morning we welcomed this year’s Launch campers to Lapwing Lodge for two or four days of language learning fun! Our first camp this year is ‘Explorer Camp’. We started the day getting our adventure log books and playing some games to learn each others’ names and get to know one another better. We crossed the crocodile infested swamp, made it through the poisonous spider web and passed the monkey’s banana between the trees.
This morning we started our day with some delicious croissants and some morning yoga with Thomas. It was a lovely calm way to start the day.
This morning we started the day with a delicious breakfast with ‘pain au chocolat’ and a Spanish morning warm-up that gave us lots of energy.
Then we went into our language groups to create our own spoof blockbuster films. We started by mind-mapping our ideas and writing our scripts. The ideas were really creative – a mash-up between Jurassic Park and the Jungle Book, a new take on Shrek and Harry Potter and even a Little Mermaid Zootropolis film.
Our wonderful group from Beath High School arrived this morning and we started our team-building activities straight away! We played games involving toilet paper, ninjas, islands and ‘magic wands’. There was lots of French, Spanish and German vocabulary right from the start.
