Matthew’s thoughts about the trip

E-mail Print

'Bonjour! I'm Matthew Salmon and I'm in Year 10. I had an excellent time travelling on this year's History Trip to Belgium and France. I found the battlefield visits very emotional. I felt very sad for the soldiers who died.

Apart from the visits in Ypres and the Somme we had a great time in Paris. I would love to go back to the Eiffel Tower!

These are my photographs whilst we were away.'
