27 children (y5 and 6) and 6 members of staff arrived at school at 4:15am! For a day fill of adventure. We set off by coach to London. I think we queued all the way and finally arrived at the London Eye at 11:15am.
We had a very informative flight on the eye, learnt lots of facts about the eye and the buildings around it. We then ventured into their 4d experience to fly through the clouds over London.
Lunch was had at McDonald's County Hall, where even the pigeons were queuing up!
Following lunch we strolled down Whitehall to see the mounted horse guards, the Cenotaph and say hello to Theresa May (who invited us in for a cup of tea but we didn't have time to stop!)
We then had a fascinating tour of the Houses of Parliament, we got to see where the MP's sit and watch the House of Lord's debating. Then we attending a workshop on how elections work and governments are formed.
Then we raced through the evening streets, through Trafalgar square, Leicester square (we saw the M&M shop but didn't get chance to stop, through China Town to the Rainforest Café for dinner. Where we sat through a couple of thunderstorms and a dancing Gorilla. Before getting back on the coach for the journey home.
We think at some point all the children slept and the teachers enjoyed the movies on show. Finally making it home at 12:15am - and were all in school this morning.
The children were excellent ambassadors for the school and we were very proud to share this fantastic day with them.
Thank you to Mrs Wingeatt (trip organiser), Mrs Halsall, Mrs Wilson, Mrs Smith and Father David for supporting the day.
