Belgium Day 2: Part 2
After leaving Langemark we visited Tyne Cot, the largest memorial in Ypres and then visited the impressive Caterpillar Crater and Hill 60. We then headed back to the hotel for much-needed food before heading back out to visit the infamous chocolate shops. I don’t think there was much chocolate left after our pupils had been!! Then we attended the Last Post ceremony at the Menin Gate, a really poignant and emotive moment of our trip. Following this we headed back to the hotel to do some creative poetry writing (accompanied by hot chocolate) inspired by pupils’ experiences so far, loosely labelled ‘Strictly Come Writing’. Our judges Craig, Bruno and Shirley were blown away by the quality of every single poem. A huge well done to Ethan J who was crowned the overall winner with Adam, Isla, Lois, Ana and Emma a close runner up!
