Year 9 German students invite pupil out (and turn them down!!)

Over the last few weeks 9Y have been working on the important structure "möchtest du" - would you like to? so they can invite people out in German.
They had to invite people out, turn them down and eventually accept the "Einladung", invitation and arrange a time to meet. Here are some of their final efforts following good practice in class and work on iPads for their final creation. Sehr gut Klasse 9!
Frau Grün particularly likes the aptness of David Cameron and Angela Merkel arranging to go out!

Final moments of the French exchange visit!

This year's French exchange visit has been a resounding success. 
Yesterday the French students visited Cardiff Bay and went on the speed boat round the bay and also visited the Senedd.

This morning they departed via a day trip to Bath.
Here are some of their fond farewells this morning.

We are all looking forward to seeing our new French friends once again when we return to Rezé en juin!

Joint day out in Cardiff!

Today Cowbridge students and the French students went to Cardiff for the day. 
First we went to the Millenium stadium and had a tour.

Here they are having a press conference. Rhys and Connor look the part!

Alex in the away rugby changing room which also happens to be the home football home changing room! We liked seeing Gareth Bale's jersey.


Imogen and Izzy holding the cup Wales won against Tonga.

Here is everyone: les Français et les Gallois devant le stade!

We then made our way to le château de Cardiff where we had a tour.

Voilà le groupe gallois! Ils s'amusent!

Here is the bandana gang!

Connor in the stocks! 

Our final activity of the day was bowling where high spirits abounded. 

The winner of the bowling was Lila May, one of our French guests who racked up an impressive score of 122.

Just time for a quick game of air hockey before we left. Very competitive!

Thank you, merci to Cowbridge students for your great company!
