A group of Year 9 and 10 Modern Foreign Language students visited Paris for two days in October
The group stayed in a beautiful chateau within 30 minutes of Paris. On the first day they visited the iconic Eiffel Tower, where most managed to climb to the staggeringly high second floor. As the weather was amazing they experienced beautiful views of Paris. Later in the day there was a visit to Notre Dame cathedral, Sacré Coeur and the old town. Here the students were able to practice
some french in the souvenir shops and cafés. On day two they explored Disneyland Paris. The final evening’s entertainment included crepe making and snail tasting!
Fantastic news! Many congratulations. #inspiration #NCW2019 https://t.co/Ml1qzbMZFf 11:16 AM - 20 Feb 2019
The Colosseum could hold between 50,000 and 80,000 spectators, having an average audience of some 65,000; it was used for gladiatorial contests and public spectacles such as mock sea battles for a short time as the hypogeum was filled in with mechanisms for other activities. https://t.co/9fADBTYgVs 10:09 AM - 20 Feb 2019
Ancient Romans traveled by land and sea. From earliest times the Romans displayed remarkable skill at building and engineering. They constructed bridges across the river Tiber, aqueducts to supply Rome with water, and sewers to drain the forum and keep the city healthy. https://t.co/vdrFUiSZdf 10:05 AM - 20 Feb 2019
