class 7 au château de la baudonnière
WEEK 3 · FRIDAY 14 SEPTEMBER 2012
CLASS 7 AU CHÂTEAU DE LA BAUDONNIÈRE
Une fois encore les filles et garçons de Class7/Remove ont eu la chance de partir une semaine au Château de la
Baudonnière en Normandie. Cette année le temps a été de la partie et nous n’avons pas eu la moindre goutte d’eau.
Parmi les activités que les enfants ont pues découvrir il y avait le canoë, l’escalade, l’escrime, le tir à l’arc et bien d’autres
encore. Les enfants ont également appris la très célèbre recette du pain à la française. Les réalisations de ces jeunes
pousses de boulanger étaient délicieuses. Il y avait aussi au programme une excursion au Mont St Michel qui malgré les
travaux de désensablement n’a rien perdu de sa superbe façade. Le matin était consacré à l’achat de spécialités ou
devrais-je dire de camelote aux marchés de Villeneuve les Poêles ou de Dinan suivant les groupes. Il y a aussi eu une
soirée française où chaque costume rivalisait d’inventivité et de beauté. Il y avait des vainqueurs du tour de France,
des mimes, Astérix en plusieurs exemplaires, et même une grenouille. Pour le dîner ce soir là nous avons pu déguster
des escargots qui ont été fort appréciés. Bien évidement au milieu de tout cet amusement nous n’avons pas oublié de
pratiquer notre français. Je dois dire que j’ai été impressionné par la qualité de la participation de nos élèves. Elles nous
ont prouvé qu’elles étaient maintenant prêtes à développer leur connaissance de la langue avec enthousiasme.

for a year, please contact me, Ruth Bowley, on 020 8682

MUSICAL NOTES
Music lessons
We currently have a shortage of girls learning the trumpet,
cello, oboe or guitar. If your daughter would like to try one
of these instruments we are offering free trial lessons.
Please get in touch if this interests you.
Adult Choir
Calling all singers! I am starting a Northwood Choral
Society which is for all parents, staff and friends of
Broomwood Hall and Northcote Lodge. We will rehearse
on Tuesday evenings in the US Hall 7.00-9.00 (starting
Tuesday 25 September) The choir will sing at the
Carol Service and occasional Evensongs and, once
established, I hope we will perform choral works such
as Fauré’s ‘Requiem’ etc. Please get in touch if you
might be interested in this. My email is [email protected]
northwoodschools.com.

WRISTBAND WINNER
Georgina Knapman (Class 5N) is a worthy winner of the

Mrs Rawlence will be looking out for a sprecial prize for
Georgina on their trip to Ethiopia in October.

Class 6A & 7A netball tour to Malta departs
When we got there we
walked to Juniper Hall
Field Studies Centre
and met our tutors
for the day. We then
went to classrooms
to learn a bit more
about Box Hill before
going to Burford
Spur to conduct our
experiments and
surveys. Despite the constant on-andoff rain and not being able to see the
Olympic rings up anymore, we all had
so much fun and would love to go
again. We are now busy writing up our
projects back at school.
