Boppard!

Boppard!

Ending the year with a summer flourish, Years 8 and 9 Germanists headed off to Boppard, where they packed in a castle visit, a trip to Cologne and a day in a theme park. They also visited a museum of mechanical musical instruments in Rüdesheim and were entertained by one of our Year 8 boys playing Ed Sheeran on a grand piano. Magnificent! They conducted street interviews with unsuspecting locals who had been enjoying (at least until we arrived!) a quiet Sunday stroll, and were complemented on their manner and the quality of their German. However, with temperatures in the high thirties, it was far too hot to wear our trip hoodies!
