Day 4 mercredi, le vingt juin

Equipe 5

Today, we saw Notre Dame Cathedral which was beautiful. We then went shopping, where we got presents for our family. Later we all walked to the Musee d'Orsay ( which felt like miles because the weather was beautiful but tiring ). This museum had paintings by famous artists (mainly Impressionists) and all these pictures were really beautiful and impressive to look at! We took our time walking around the museum and looking at paintings, as we did a quiz and whoever wins will get a prize! After this we got a train to the resturant where the food was delicious. After this we got the train back to Musee d'Orsay(to join the bus back to the hotel). Seven people were nearly left on the train, however, our brave, amazing teachers jumped in to save us !!.

Equipe 4

Aujourd'hui, nous avons visite la Cathedrale de Notre Dame, le Musee d'Orsay et nous avons fait un pique-nique devant le Centre Pompidou. A Notre Dame, nous avons vu les gargoyles et Quasimodo. Nous avons fait une promenade au Centre Pompidou du Musee d'Orsay. Au Musee d'Orsay, nous avons fait un quiz. To get to the restaurant for dinner, we took the Metro. Miss McCahill and Mr McIntyre got stuck in the doors of the train while holding them open for the 36 of us to get on. A lot of people (not us) were complaining of sore feet. Oh... and our group is the best and every time we have to regroup we are the quickest and win every time!

Equipe 6

Today we got lunch next to the Water Fountain at the Centre Pompidou. Then went to Notre Dame which was breathtaking. We walked to the Musee d'Orsay in the sweltering heat but it was worth it because it was interesting. We got the metro to dinner which was a real challenge trying to get 36 pupils on and off the train. We succeeded although Mr. McIntyre got squashed between the ruthless doors. What a wonderful day! Can't wait till Disney Land tomorrow!

Equipe 3

Wednesday, what a day! We had a long lie today - only till 9 though! Then we went into The Marais, and had lunch outside the Pompidou centre. We then went a lovely walk to Notre Dame. We got the underground over to the Musee d'Orsay, where we went away on our own and did tasks to find out about the building - it was very interesting, even the building was very artistic with all the detail on the ceiling and walls. Lewis and Kyle got a portrait painted - they thought Lewis was a rock star. We then went for dinner in a self service restaurant in the centre of Paris. We are all going to go to bed quite early as we are excited about Euro Disney tomorrow. A bientot!

Equipe 2

Aujourd hui, c'etait tres amusant! On a visite Notre Dame et le Musee d'Orsay. On a dejeune devant le centre Pompidou.On a fait du shopping pendant 30 minutes. C'etait excellent et on a pris le metro pour aller diner. On the way back on the metro some teachers got caught in the doors when they were hurrying the 36 pupils out, but they were ok and we had a laugh! Overall it was a brilliant day. Everyone is getting on well together, making lots of new friends and having an amazing holiday. Au Revoir !
