My name is Pierrick Gilibert. I come from France near Geneva.
I have spent 3 weeks in Wallingford with Shan’s family. I have learnt a lot about history by visiting places of interest and by reading about history in lessons. I have learnt interesting vocabulary for example about “time” or “conflict and solution”. I’ve improved my writing with a daily journal of my stay. We also have done a lot of grammar and literature. I even wrote about Shakespeare’s play, “Henry V” which we watched on TV.
I’ve visited lots of places: Oxford (walking tour of the Oxford Colleges and the Castle), London, Henley-on-Thames, the Ashmolean and the Natural History Museum, … Best of all were the Living Rainforest and Cotswold Wildlife Park and Garden. It’s a big zoo with a lot of animals. We were in the lemurs enclosure where one lemur was exploring a wheelchair. When it jumped on the wheel, the chair moved and the lemur had a shock! =)
This week, I went to two barbecues. It was a lot of fun!
