Our stay in Margate with the Dingley family





 Hello! our names are Capucine and Polina . We are from France and Russia and we are 12 years old.

We stay in Margate with Ella, Jim, Alexandra their daughter,Tia the dog and Speedy Gonzales the tortoise. The house is big and cosy with a big garden. The house is near the beach. We spent a lot of time in the beach. The sea is very cold at first but then it becomes very warm. Every day ,we did activities . We went shopping in Westwood Cross (big shopping centre), we played Crazy mini-golf, table tennis, Scrabble, Guess who?, Wii on the TV, tennis at the seaside tennis court, we had a water fight with water guns in the garden, we picked cherries at the PYO farm, we went swimming in the swimming pool with waves and a big slide. We had a trip to Canterbury and visited Canterbury Cathedral, On Sunday we had a lot of fun in Dreamland, old-fashioned amusement park. On my, Capucine’s, birthday we went to the cinema. (I had also a present in the morning and a birthday cake with candles in the evening). We went to Turner Gallery and saw an exhibition there. It is called “Animals and us”. We saw a modern dance there too.

I, Polina, learned new words in our lessons especially polite words. I, Capucine, also learned a lot of new words (like parts of the body, opposites) and how to read the time. We learned how to speak to each other in English. We wrote our diaries every evening. Every evening we watched Harry Potter films: Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Harry Potter and the Order of Phoenix, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

The food was yummy and very delicious. Our favourite was rice with curry.

We will recommend to come here because Ella is very kind and takes us to different places and comes with us. She swims with us in the sea and the swimming pool and goes down the big slide too.
