Birthdays and Excursion

Happy Birthday Jack and Olivia!

I was a bit worried about having my birthday on school journey, but today has been great! Thanks for the presents Mum and Dad - Jack

Thanks for the ring and other presents, Mum and Dad! I'm wearing them to the disco tonight. Today has been a great birthday! - Olivia

We've had a great day today. To start we celebrated Jack and Olivia's birthdays by singing all together this morning. Then we set off on our excursion, first to Padirac to visit the caves which were absolutely stunning. We traveled all the way down and went on boats throughout the caves. After we had lunch in the park we set off to Rocamadour, a beautiful little town set in the hillside. We all went shopping and bought little gifts, trinkets and sweets! The sun has been shining all day and we've all been loving it!

Even though we leave for home tomorrow after supper, we still have a lot to look forward to. Tonight is the talent show/disco that we've been eagerly awaiting all week and tomorrow we have one group finishing up their activities on site and another group off to the lake. We can't believe how the time has flown by. We've had such fun but are looking forward to seeing familiar faces on Sunday morning!
