When we were visiting the school I asked you to write down the forms your penfriends were in and what the letters (A, C, J, L, P, S) stand for.
Get ready to find out more about the women that were chosen for the form titles at Folkestone school for girls!
You will create a presentation about an amazing woman :
- Who was she ? (When did she live, what was the historical context, what was her job…?)
- Why is she remembered today ?
- Why was she a "wonder woman "? (speak about details that you think are amazing, surprising or even shocking!)
The class will vote to decide who was the most incredible woman !
- Work in groups, you will get the name of your "wonder woman" randomly.
- Click on the links in the "Commun>Euro" folder and take notes in your notebook. (ALL group members MUST take notes)
- Use a dictionnary such as "word reference" if necessary.
- Write your presentation, divide it in parts, and record yourself using audacity!
- The next step will be to make your presentation into a short animation film using "powtoon"!
- You will create a blog article in the "Wonder women" category to share your film!

For example Louis went in Christianism, Camille went in geography and Oscar went in EP. Then, we have visited the school and we have to search different places. For exemple, "star benches" or "the oldest building of the school".

We arrived to your collège at 9am and we began the day with one "find someone who..."
After,in a group,i've visited the school with Nikola(my penfriend).WE have lunch at 12;25.
In the afternoon ,we have made a "speed dating"and a quiz in group(we won).We walk on the Leas to join the Folkestone's center and we had free time before taking the bus to return to France.
I've like this day, it was funny to see an other school of French's school!In Folkestone school for girls, there are drama,religion,dance's class and pupils are obliged wear a uniform while in France we have none of these things.
On 27th March, we went to England ; We left our school at 08:00 am by coach and took the shuttle. We went to the Folkestone school for girls in Sandgate.
When we arrived, we played a game which was : "Who is who?" => we had to find out who was our penpal. We visited the school in small groups and observed a lesson.
- Emeline participated in a religious lesson.
- Emie was in a science course and Maelle was in an I.C.T course...
Then we had lunch at the canteen of the school.
In the afternoon a speed dating game and a quiz were organisaded. That was really good !!
We left the school at about 3:00am and walked along the "The Leas".
We had free time for shopping.
We took the coach back at 4:00pm (local time) and arrived in France at 7:00pm (local time).
The differences :
First of all, their school is much bigger than ours ; In their school, there are only girls whilst in ours there are boys and girls. Students have a badge to go in and out of the school. Their yard is bigger than ours and the students have several choices of menus for lunch.
They start school at 9:00am and finish at 3:30pm.
They wear uniforms made up of a blaser, a shirt, a skirt, socks and shoes.
They learn drama, dance, have different sport activities and have religious education but in France we don't have these subjects.
Emeline's opinion :
I had a very good day with my penfriend. She is very nice and shy as I am ! We spoke English a lot ! The day went too quick as I enjoyed visiting an English scool which is different than ours. I would like to go back again !
Maelle's opinion :
It was a very nice day in England with my friends and my penfriend. The Folkestone school for girls is a beautiful and big school. I really liked playing quizz and doing some shopping. It was fun !
Emie's opinion :
I prefer the school of my penfriends because there is more freedom like using mobile phones in the classrooms, having a badge to go in and out...

On the 27th of March, we went to England with the class. We arrived at 9a.m. We saw our penfriends. One part of the class went in the classroom and another part visited the school, during the visit we had to look for some things ( it was the picture challenge ). There were school subjects that we don't have in France like religion, drama, dance... After the lunch we made a speed dating and a quizz in team. At the end we won some chocolate. After that we walked to the center of Folkestone. We had a free time, we did shopping ! And we came back to France.
The difference was that students can go to class when they want ( is not the teatcher who come to them). At 12.25p.m we ate and we had the choice between different menus. It was not the same as French schools because we can choose what we want to eat (pasta with chicken or meat and rice with chicken)...
Romane's opinion: During this day, we communitated a lot with our penfriends during the speed dating. It was very cool I found that this day passed to fast and we haven't got time enough in the school but it was fun. The menu was very good.

Maïa's opinion : I really liked this trip because it was the first time that I had a English penfriend. And this day takes us forward in english. The activities were interesting and during this day, I discovered an english day at school : it was different from a french day ! And a new english town : Folkestone.
IT WAS A GOOD EXPERIENCE !
We left the college at 8am, we went to the tunnel and we arrived in England at 9am (English time).
On arriving, we made a "game" to try to find our penfriends.
Then we attended an hour of classes (theaters for Aimy, Physics for Heloise and Created Art for Jade).
And to finish the morning, we visited their school.
At lunchtime we ate at the canteen.
In the afternoon, we did a "speed dating" and a quiz at school.
At the end of the day, we went for a walk and shopping and then we returned to France at 19h.
In England, students had more rights than in France : they could talk, drink , get up...
Their school was very big and there were several buildings.
They have different subjects like drame, religion, cooking, computing. Students start at 8:45 am and finish at 3:30 pm.
Students wear a uniform contiting of a skirt, tights, pullover, blazer.
The school is exclusively for girls.
We have prefered the quizz and the"speed dating" but did not appreciate the lessons they were very noisy and boring.
The lessons were very noisy and there has not a lot of dicipline. They have the rights to theirs phones during classes.
Jade enjoyed the course of plastic art and her correspondent was very friendly while Aimy and Héloïse were disappointed not to have a correspondent present. But that didn't stop us from keeping very good memories of the day because we had live a experience where we could discover another system and meet great people.
Aimy, Jade and Héloïse.
We arrived at folkestone around 9 o'clock and we are direcly go in the class. There are lot of noise, they are worked on the earthquake in class.
After we visited the school and we played at "picture challenge" in the morning. We ate with our penfriends.
On the afternoon, we played at "speeddating" and after we did a quizz with our penfriends.
We were we walk in the "leas".
After we walk, we had on leave for the shopping.
And in final, we talked with our penfriend before our come back in the France.
The differences :
The people were most energetic.
Rémy's opinion :
It's a good experience.
We began the travel at 8:00 a.m to arrive in England with the shuttle at 9:00 a.m (local time). We had meet our penfriends, speak with them and do a game : the "find someone who ...". After, our class was separated in two groups. The first went with our penfriends in their lessons and the second was visited the school before to change the activities.
Maëlys's experience : At 10:00 a.m, I went in the lesson of geography with my penfriend Zoha. There was twenty girls in the classroom but they spoke like thirty pupils ! It's crazy ! All pupils got a uniform... It's so strange ! The school is very BIG and their food is really delicious !
Lea's experience : I began by the dance lesson. I am REALLY shocked by the choregraphies ! They were so impressive, creative and expressive ! Their musics are just beautiful and perfect to contemporary style !!! We havn't got this school subject in France but I would really like do this ! (I am passionate about dance for nine years...) Their school is very big but I'm happy to not have uniform : our style show our personnality !
Jojo's experience : After the visit of the school, I went one hour in religious education. It was interesting because in our school we don't have this subject because we are in a public school. During the visit, I saw a dance lesson and the girls have a good level ! They are wearing a uniform which is including a skirt, a blouse, a tie, a sweater, stockings and shoes. I thought they liked their uniform and were proud of it but it's not the case, they don't like it. Then, the school is much bigger than ours. They have also much more room everywhere. The girls are from England but there are also daughters from military people who are travelling the world.
At the lunchtime, we went to the canteen to eat. Over there, we have a lot of choices of menus and if we take the meal mit vegatables, we can take a little cake !
Maëlys's experience : There were several choices and super good !
Lea's experience : It was so cool, we had a lot of choices ! For my part, I took bolognese pasta with a passion juice (it became my favorite juice), cheese and a clementine. That was very good !
Jojo's experience : We had a lot of choices and that was really good !
The afternoon, we did a "speed dating" then a quiz in teams. After the goodbyes, we had walked on the board of "the Leas" and we had a free time in the center of Folkestone to buy somethings !!!
Maëlys's experience : Then, we were done games with correspondants at 1:20 p.m and it was a kind of quiz great fun ! After we had to say good bye and we were walked on the "Leas". To finish we returned to the bus at 4:00 p.m.
Lea's experience : The "speed dating" was a little to "speed" (we can't really discover somebody in two minutes...) and the quiz was sometimes difficult ! The walk was very good, it was nice and I had learn some things ! After that, that was one of my favorite moment : a free time to do SHOPPING !!! I went to primark and I had buy some clothes ! That was so good but we had not enough time...
Jojo's experience : The travel was very interesting for us because we saw a different education in an other country and the girls were nices !
At 4:00 p.m, that was time to come back in France...
Finally, everybody have been passing a very good day in Folkestone and we wait with impatience than our penfriends come !
