Hi Room 9
Now I am in England I can use the class blog again.. Not sure why I couldn't in France?? Probably just some setting Mr Riceman or James would have known about but no worries I was too busy visiting places and riding the trains. There are soooooo many trains in France. Huge stations and multiple lines everywhere. When they talk to the public over the loud speakers they always play a set piece of music. Always the same everywhere in the country. I can still hear it in my head!!
I have made several slideshows and put them on the Reading page of our class site. There are so many memorials and cemeteries here as so many men died in the two wars. We found the grave site of my great uncle finally after a long day of train, bus and taxi rides. He rests in a very small cemetery in a very small village that not many of the French people even knew about.     
Remember to email me.


  1. How fantastic you were able to find the grave site of your great uncle Miss Sands.
    That I imagine would be quite emotional.
    Safe travels.

  2. Kia ora Miss Sands. I imagine your great uncle was a man of integrity. It would have taken courage and heart for he and the many who fought in the war to have stood in the gap for our freedom. Lest we forget.

    Hope you are having a wonderful time. From Sally.
