On Thursday 13th June our Year 4 class enjoyed a funfilled day exploring our capital city of London!
The journey started with a virgin train to Euston station, on arrival they made their way via the underground to Westminster. On exiting the tube station the children were face to face with Big Ben and Parliament. A short walk over Westminster bridge lead them to the London Eye, a trip around this then offered incredible views for miles of the city!
Then followed by a pitstop at Pizza Express, the children enjoyed a three course lunch which fueled them for a walk to Buckingham Palace. On route this opened their eyes to the hussle and bussle of busy city life compared to the sleepy town of Tamworth. Upon arrival, the flag was flying high so even the queen knew Hanbury's Farm were visiting for the day and made sure she was home for the occasion!
The last stop for the day was The Natural History Museum, full of all things fascinating and wonderful. From dinosaur bones to a replicar of the real moon it had so much to offer, the children even got to go on an earthquake simulator.
It all resulted in very quiet train journey home, the weary travellers enjoyed snacks and shared stories of their favourite memories from the day.
All in all it was an excellent day, both pupils and staff thoroughly enjoyed it. Don't forget to go to the gallery page to view some pictures.
