School exchange with RGS Worcester (2)

Well , everything went ever so well .....

With Mr Rattue, the headmaster of RGS

 We are so happy with how things turned out ....

The host families were exceptional - our children really felt at home. We have to say that all of them behaved extremely well.

The only thing that was not so good was the weather . We had lots of snow during the weekend !

In the language lab at school

We also have to thank the headmaster of the school and especially all the teachers from the Spanish Department , who made our stay very pleasant.

 Have a look at the pictures and see what a great time our students had.

At the school canteen

There was a little bit of everything , as you can see: the students attended some lessons at school and experienced how a day in a British school is ( even  the canteen meals !! )

Near Buckingham Palace

Also there was lots of sightseeing !!

We visited London - the capital of the country .

The London Eye
There we  saw the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace , climbed up the lions in Trafalgar Square , went shopping in Covent Garden , went mad at the M&Ms shop in Leicester Square , took a look through the gate of Downing Street , took loads of pictures of the Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament and finally went up The London Eye .

It was great , although it was absolutely freezing cold !!! Well , at least it did not rain.

Sealife Centre, Birmingham
 In Birmingham we paid a visit to the Sealife Centre , a wonderful aquarium in one of the nicest areas of the city centre.

 Then all of us enjoyed shopping in Birmingham famous Bullring , much more than a mall ! Glorious !!!!

At Christ Church in Oxford
And we also visited the lovely city of Oxford , where we had an exceptional guide. Our school , IES Goya, has a student at Oxford University right now : Uxue Rambla .

She showed us around and told our students all the funny little stories about the life of university students : college parties , lessons, exams and all kind of university rituals. 

Thanks a lot Uxue - it was lovely to see you !!

With Uxue in Oxford

Soon I´ll be publishing some slides with the whole lot of pictures we took during the trip to England .

You have to wait a little bit , though. I have more than 300 pics !!

Off we go !
