L’album Cours ! sélectionné dans le cadre du prix Nénuphar de l’album jeunesse a été l’occasion pour les 4 classes de 6e et 2 classes de 5e de rencontrer des sportifs de haut niveau, invités par Mme Mesmacque, M. Le Guillou et Mme Sellam.
Richard Demaret, Florian Billant, Tom Pelayo, John NKonda, handballeurs du club de Dunkerque et Quentin Pladys athlète de saut en hauteur (son record est de 2m13 !) d’Elan 59 ( entraîné par notre professeur d’EPS M. Le Guillou ) ont répondu aux très nombreuses questions préparées par les élèves.
La lecture de l’album et des activités, une consacrée aux images véhiculées par le sport à travers des articles de presse, l’autre sur l’intérêt de pratiquer une activité sportive, ont nourri la réflexion des élèves.
La classe de 4e5 et leur professeur Mme Quétel ont pu rencontrer lors de 2 séances de 2h, courant février, la conteuse d’origine libanaise Thérêsa Amoon, en résidence au Château Coquelle. Les élèves se sont initiés au récit forum et ont ainsi pu comprendre puis mettre en pratique, comment se construisait une histoire et comment l’étoffer pour la rendre encore plus passionnante. A travers cette expérience riche, les élèves sont amenés à améliorer leur prise de parole.
« On Friday 9th, February we left Abingdon at 8.00 am and went to Eversley to play cricket. We arrived there at 9.30 but the meeting was at 10.00.
We did many activities like relays…Clovis won a game so he was given a bat dedicated by the 3 coaches whose names were Steve, Léon and James. Finally we played real cricket. James split us into 4 groups : the Bears, the Lions, the Sharks and the Chickens !
The Sharks won the competition and we won a cricket set to take back to our school in Dunkirk.
We left Eversley at 12.30 and arrived at Dover at 3.30pm. The ferry left at 4.40pm.
On the ferry we could buy some souvenirs like food or key rings.
The ferry landed in Calais at 7.10pm and finally we saw our families at nearly 8.00pm.
It was a fantastic trip ! Thanks to Mrs Evrard, Mrs Tisserand, Mrs Leduc and Maxime ! » Adèle Ropital, 3°3
« The last day we came back to Dunkirk.
On the way we stopped at a cricket club in Eversley, south west of London.There were 2 coaches and a player who taught us how to play cricket and they organised a competition between the 4 teams.
We ate there and after we left Eversley to Dunkirk. For the crossing from Dover to Calais we took the ferry and we got to Dunkirk at 8.00pm. » Audric Brouart, 3°4
« The day started at 8 am. We went to Blenheim Palace ( see top photos). The visit started at 10.00. First we saw the key of the Palace. Il was heavy and the most beautiful key I had ever seen.
A lot of films were shot there( James Bond, three of the Harry Potter films…) In Blenheim we saw the rarest carpet in the world. There are only 8 of these in the world ! In Blenheim there were a lot of paintings and tapestries.
After the visit we went to the toilets and we went shopping in the Palace’s shop. We ate in front of the shop and then we walked across the garden. With some of my friends we looked for the « Whomping Willow »but we didn’t find it. We saw an ice-cream shop. It was closed and Jeanne was sad!After, we followed Mrs Leduc to a Maze. Juliette hurt her left leg.
In the afternoon we went to Oxford. Clovis, Mrs Leduc , Maxime , Esteban and Ewen carried Juliette on their backs ! Then some of us ate scones with clotted cream and we drank English tea with milk. It was delicious ! And , then we visited Oxford. Some of us started with the visit and finished with the cream tea at the Café Loco. » Claire Cancel,3°3
« We woke up at 6.30 am. We ate our breakfast and we left our host family at 8.00am and we took the coach. At 8.30, we arrived at Blenheim Palace. It’s a very big palace where Winston Churchill was born and where the Duke and Duchess of Marlborough and their 3 children still live.There were a lot of paintings by Louis Laguerre on the walls. During the first World War , Blenheim Palace was used as a hospital for the seriously injured soldiers.
In the afternoon we went to Oxford. One part of our class had English tea with scones and clotted cream with jam in a café. ( Scones are English little cakes)( see photo). The other part of the class had free time in Oxford to visit the city. »Ambre Martinelli, 3°5
« In the morning we left the families and we came to the coach. When everybody was there, we went to Tesco, a supermarket. We organised 4 groups. I was with Mrs Evrard. She showed us British specialities. Some pupils bought some things, candies, pens, food…After that, we came back to the coach and we went to « The Making of Harry Potter ». We arrived at the car park at 11 pm. We ate and a woman explained the rules of the visit. They gave us bracelet passes and the visit began. First we had to sit in a cinema room and saw an introduction film. Just after that , we entered « the Great Hall » of Harry Potter. The next room was a bigger room than the others. There were a lot of props, costumes, wigs. In this room, we could take photos of ourselves in a Hogwarts wizard robe. I bought the photo with some friends.Then I walked to the « Forbidden Forest ». I was afraid of the big , big spiders ! Next it was Hogwarts express. I took photos of the creatures’ models. Then I saw a great model of Hogwarts castle. Finally we could buy wands in the shop .
We left the studios at 4.30 pm. » Clovis Potier , 3°3
« In the morning, we went to Tesco( a supermarket). We bought some English food with the teachers. Then we went to the studios of Harry Potter and the trip was very long( one hour) by coach. Before the visit, we ate the sandwiches the families gave us before we left. We got a pass to enter the studios. In the Hall, we were checked. We first saw Harry Potter’s bed in his cupboard, all the costumes, the props, Harry Potter’s house, the train….At the end of the visit, we bought some souvenirs but it was very expensive. I bought a figure of Harry Potter and a wand.
I loved this day because I have seen the Harry Potter films and I am a fan. If I were you, I would go to the Studios of Harry Potter in Leavesden ! » Victor Amossé, 3°5
