German Exchange return leg – final update!

After a brilliant weekend by all accounts, the German and English students joined together for a trip to Stratford upon Avon, home of William Shakespeare! They spent the morning at Tudor World, taking part in three interactive workshops; visiting the museum to learn about Tudor history, taking a look at weapons and torture implements used in a crime and punishment session, and perfecting the art of Elizabethan Theatre with a drama workshop! Highlights included…Ellie Whitehead being put in the stocks, and the year 10 girls practising their best Shakespearian English!

On Tuesday, the German students visited Leamington and completed a town trail! Well done to partners of Hannah Wright, Sarah Dimambro-Denson and Beth Ovens, who won the competition for the most correct answers and for finding out so much about Leamington!

To finish off a brilliant week, on Tuesday evening we had a leaving meal and party for all the German and English students, along with their host families and siblings! Thank you so much to the students and parents for providing such brilliant food contributions for this party – they really outdid themselves!

After a teary goodbye this afternoon, the German students (and teachers) have now landed safely in Germany, and arrived in Lauffen.

I hope that both groups of students had a fantastic week, and that they benefitted from the experience! Thank you for hosting, and for your impeccable behaviour this week!

Thank you very much to the host families for being so generous and hospitable, to the PE department for arranging the trampolining, to the languages department for their help, and particularly Miss Galvin and Ms French for taking trips!

We hope to see even more Y9 and Y10 students taking part next year!!

Dankeschön!

German Exchange Return Leg so far…!

This week, Y10 and Y11 students of German are hosting 21 lovely pupils from Hölderlin Gymnasium in Lauffen am Neckar, near Stuttgart in Germany. The students will be taking part in a range of trips and activities and we hope they will all benefit from this week, both culturally and linguistically.

The group arrived on Wednesday afternoon and were met eagerly by their English exchange partners (and were even welcomed by a whole host of Y11 students!)
On Wednesday, they attended a get together in the evening, and seemed to enjoy catching up with each other after the 7 months apart, since the English students’ visit to Germany back in March.

On Thursday morning, the students were treated to a session of trampolining, run by Mr. Elkerton and Mr Eadon, and in the afternoon they attended an informative talk at the Grange Hall in Southam and completed a short historical tour of the town! They seemed to understand a great deal of the English spoken, which is a credit to their brilliant English teachers (Herr Holfelder, Frau Wacker) etc!!

On Friday, the German students spent the day in Birmingham, sampling the delights of a certain typically British chocolate and visiting the city! The evening ended with a bowling trip, along with their English partners, where they seemed to have plenty of fun!

We wish them a fantastic weekend with their partners and host families – many of them seem to have some great activities planned for them!

Schönes Wochenende!
