Our fabulous field trip to Wales

From  Monday the 16th to Saturday 21st of June 2014, we went on a trip to Wales and EnglandDuring this trip we did a lot of activities in different cities, met so many people and had fun.

In spite of an agitated evening on the ferry, we arrived in Portsmouth safe but definitely tired.We headed to Bath, the historical city , especially known for its Roman bath and impressive architecture.

On Wednesday, we visited the capital of Wales, Cardiff and the two main museums : the National Museum and Doctor Who’s Experience, then we went to Cardiff Market, an impressive Victorian structure which offers a unique shopping experience. But the best was yet to come…

The next day, a bunch of 12 brave pupils had the opportunity to climb Ffynnon Garw, a mountain of 1007 feet.After that, we went underground to explore BigPit, a closed mine. Then, on the last day of our trip, we spent the whole day with some students from Priory Community School in Weston Super Mare,somerset. We attended classes and practiced sports with them. Girls played a typical English game called rounders and boys played football.It was a truly enriching experience for all of us and probably the best part of our stay.

There was an excellent athmosphere in the group and we all enjoyed visiting some of the most outstanding places of Wales. That’s why we will always remember this journey.

This trip will be engraved in our memories forever !!
