Year 6 Normandy Trip

Our lucky Year 6 pupils have returned from an action-packed visit to Normandy. The annual trip is designed to immerse our pupils in the French language and culture as they get stuck into tasks including navigating French towns, negotiating supermarkets and ordering food in restaurants.

This year was particularly poignant as it coincided with the D-Day80 Celebrations, which took part in the region while the children were there. Our groups visited the Caen Memorial Museum and learnt all about D-Day and the importance of securing the city of Caen, if the landings in Normandy were to be a success. We were impressed with our pupils’ reverence and respect as they began to contemplate the sacrifices made 80 years ago.

We would like to thank our wonderful hosts and all the staff who made this trip so enjoyable, but special thanks must go to our wonderful pupils who represented Truro School Prep so beautifully and helped to make lasting memories.
