We had an absolutely fabulous time on our Year 6 London trip this year! It was jam-packed two days and we loved it!
It started with us getting to school super early- 7am- to get on the coach ready to go down to London. Everyone arrived with their cases packed and few stow-away teddies on board too!
On day 1 we visited the Natural History Museum and the Science Museum before popping off to Pizza Express for some tea. Ella said 'I learnt really interesting things from the two museums and I learnt about things I didn't even know had ever existed!'
After tea we were off to the Cambridge Theatre to see Matilda. It was fantastic, we loved all of the songs and the experience of being in a West End theatre. Molly said 'I enjoyed seeing Matilda because the show was really good and the scenes were really entertaining.'
Our hostel accommodation was lovely and we had a great night's sleep before our second day.
On our second day we set off for the National Gallery as our first stop. We loved looking at the painting and recognised quite a few of the famous ones! From the National Gallery we walked down to Buckingham Palace and stopped in St James' Park for a picnic lunch. We popped across to Horse Guard's Parade and down to Downing Street before seeing the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben. It was finally time for a sit down on our river cruise on the Thames. We had a great time listening to facts about London.
Our final event was a trip on the London Eye before setting off home.
