Pupils’ five days in France and Belgium

PUPILS from two classes from Years 5 and 6 at Frodsham Manor House Primary School enjoyed a five-day tour of France and Belgium to develop their French language and history skills.
They visited Passchendale Museum to find out about life in the trenches in World War One and then visited two cemeteries.
At Tyne Cot they searched for the names of past Frodsham residents who had lost their lives during the war and Langemark, where they met visiting German reservists before heading to Ypres for their own Service of Remembrance.
The following day included visit to a French chocolate factory, a snail farm and a supermarket.
Their final full day had a World War Two focus, with a visit to a German bunker at La Coupole, where they found out about life under German occupations and the role of the French Resistence.
Evening activities included cheese tasting, crepe making and a disco.
