Kingswood Day 2 – Baking & Battlefields!

 

After a busy day of activities yesterday, in the evening pupils and students learned how to bake authentic croissants (pictured looking delicious!) and then tried their hands at archery. Pupils and students were early to bed last night in preparation for a day of history in the city of Arras.

This morning, pupils and students went to Wellington Quarry (la Carrière Wellington) in Arras to explore an underground museum which has been carefully and sensitively created in a section of the many kilometres of tunnels dug by the British Army in the 1914-1918 war (http://www.greatwar.co.uk/french-flanders-artois/museum-wellington-quarry.htm).

This afternoon, pupils and students went to Vimy Ridge, also in Arras, to view the battleground where the battle of Vimy Ridge took place during World War I.

A bientôt!
