Your students will love exploring the area and putting their French skills to the test on a school trip to Normandy!
Within easy reach of the UK, it’s no surprise that Normandy is such a popular destination for school groups.
On a French school trip to Normandy, your students can visit a local market to learn about some of the region’s incredible produce or visit the Arromanches Landings Museum to discover the area’s rich history, all while practising their French.
For Key Stage 3 students, a French school trip to Normandy offers plenty of opportunities to practise and develop their vocabulary around a number of different topics, from exploring the town to food and drink.
GCSE students preparing for oral exams will really benefit from the many opportunities they’ll have to practise speaking French with native speakers on an everyday basis. They too will be able to work on their vocabulary around a number of topics including food, drink and eating out, and environmental issues. This is also a fantastic opportunity for them to develop their understanding of French culture and identity.
And A-level students too will benefit from opportunities to develop their ability to discuss topics including political culture, the world of work and artistic culture. They will also develop their understanding of aspects of French-speaking society and will have opportunities to work on their individual research projects if required.
And why not team up with the history department to make your trip to Normandy cross-curricular? There are some incredible opportunities here to learn more about WW2.
