On 30th September, Vinehall’s Year 4 pupils visited the Europa Centre in Hornchurch, Essex to broaden and enrich their education with a cultural, linguistic and gastronomic experience of France and the French way of life.  The centre houses an indoor, mock ‘European town’, with streets, shops, café, cinema, a market square and a puppet theatre.  The children took part in a number of activities, all of which were conducted in French with French speaking natives.  Pupils were given some Euros and a shopping list of things that they had to buy.  The children learned a great deal and much fun was had by all!
