Today: Fishing in the pond and the Belle River. The children have discovered different techniques and many living things: dytics, larvae of dragonflies and damselflies, leeches, gerrys ... All have searched with enthusiasm and application! The afternoon was devoted to the study of the harvested animals; students learned to use a determination key to name them. The day ended with collective games outdoors despite the haze! Everyone is happy!
This morning, our animators organized a "who am I" game to rename and rediscover the characteristics of all living beings encountered during our stay. Then the students learned the importance of each animal in the food chain. This afternoon, after having packed all our belongings and finished the housework, the children took part in a treasure hunt a little particular: it was a question of finding the waste deposited previously by Gilles! Thanks to Sylvie, Gilles and Pascale for this enriching stay!
After a good first night at the Langlade settlement, the students woke up in a gloomy weather. However, although the day was wet, it was also very interesting and the children were able to appreciate the different activities on offer. This morning, the students went to the site of the mouth of the Belle-Rivière. On site, they were able to study through old photographs what has been the evolution of this mouth through the decades. They also made a sketch of the site. The afternoon also filled them while they were able to go fishing in the pond. The goal is to capture several living creatures of this ecosystem. The exploitation of this fishery is scheduled for tomorrow morning. For the rest everyone is like a charm and everyone appreciates this stay. See you tomorrow for more news !
his new day in Langlade was sunny from start to finish! Indeed, the sun was present when we woke up and did not leave us. This morning, after a good breakfast, we analyzed the result of our fishing yesterday at the pond and in the Belle-Rivière. We observed, recognized and classified the different insects harvested. Then, a work was carried out around the identification of the different stages of the cycle of life of the dragonfly. In the afternoon, after a meal that was still very popular, a game was organized around the food chain, it was great! We have a great time, everyone is fine and goes to sleep very quickly at night! We will give you more details about our adventures when we return home! See you tomorrow ! PS: Due to the weather conditions announced, the return can not be done as originally announced. Listen to the announcements Wednesday morning on the radio for more details.
What a beautiful first day! We invested our neighborhoods in the morning and rediscovered the colo: that we are in Langlade! This afternoon, we started the nautical activities. The team "puffins dune" embarked on the puffin, precisely! The brave ones tried themselves to the navigation despite a wind a little sustained which made tilt well the boat. A good scare for some, while others have brilliantly taken the helm. The "Duplicate Hunters" team left for a kayak session on the side of the cove at Ross. Sports session: we had to row hard to fight against the wind! Many sailors were able to taste the water (5 ° at the moment), others were stranded in the seaweed ... but everyone came home delighted and proud of his feat! "The Saint-Pierrais" remained on the ground today: walk to the bottom of the government cove, prisoner ball and swim in the Belle River to finish! After the snack, everyone wrote a travel diary, just to keep track of this wonderful day. See you tomorrow!
After an awakening in the rain, the weather quickly cleared and we were able to continue the water activities. Despite some beautiful gusts of wind, "hunters of duplicates" have distinguished themselves at the helm of the puffin. Some even tested their balance at the front of the boat! It was a lot of fun at times but everyone overcame their fear! Meanwhile, "the puffins of the dune" were throwing themselves into a contest of sandcastles, brilliantly won by Diane! Kayakers enjoyed themselves all day in the water of the Belle River: American descent, large sea snake, raft or even balance games! And bathing, of course! See you tomorrow !
This morning, the team "Saint-Pierrais" sailed on the puffin. Our sailors had fun in the government's cove, while the "duplicate hunters" proved themselves by kayak. "The puffins of the dune" found themselves in the plain of the three fir trees for a beautiful part of customs-smugglers! The afternoon was somewhat disturbed by the weather: the zodiac exit came to a halt, the children retreated to the colo for other activities. "Les Saint-Pierrais" happily found the kayaks despite the showers, but the pouring rain and the gusts of wind got the better of them after an hour! In the evening, evenings are pleasant: tales, discoveries of constellations, history of cartography, reading of nautical charts or treasure hunt. We have little time to get bored! More pictures tomorrow!
What a beautiful day ! This morning our boatmen were able to choose their activity according to their preferences. Some have found the kayaks and the Belle River: lots of balance games, descent rapids with a sail. Others have perfected the puffin maneuver: hold the rudder and stay on course, adjust the mizzen or the jib. The last team took advantage of a zodiac exit to pass under the pierced cape, to observe the guillemots, the gannets, and to raise the lockers. Fishing of the day: some crabs, a hermit crab and a toad. No lobster. This afternoon, we all donned our combi: bathing at the sea (brrrrrr) and then at the Belle River. We ended this week of nautical activities cheerfully. At the end of the afternoon, we continued our learning of nautical charts. We found the place where is the wreck of a schooner (the Union) by using a rule Cras and a compass! Tonight we organized a big hide and seek once it was dark; everyone really enjoyed themselves! Tomorrow is the storage and then back home, the week has really passed quickly. A big thank you to the sailing instructors Thomas, Mathieu and Joani for their great work and energy!
