Y6 Discover London

Children from Oak Class have just returned from a fabulous 2-day trip to the capital city. We left Winsford station, all excited, ready for two days packed full of adventure and new experiences.

After arriving at Euston Station we set off for the first of many Underground trips to St.Pauls YHA so we could leave our bags before setting off to explore. We had lunch on the banks of the River Thames followed by a trip to the Tower of London. We learnt about life as a prisoner, gazed in awe at the Crown Jewels and marvelled at the suits of armour and the stone spiral staircase. Hours whizzed and soon it was time to head off to Leicester Square for tea at Pizza Express  and a tour of Covent Garden. As Londoners enjoyed their evening we were already sat in the Cambridge Theatre mesmerised by the fantastic Matilda. What a performance! (Thankfully our headteacher is not like Miss.Trunchbull). Day 1 had come to an end…

Following an early morning game of Monopoly and a hearty breakfast it was time for Day 2! Off we went on the Underground again to Kensington and the Science Museum. Here we were amazed by the exhibits; some of us were inspired to become engineers. To quote Kyle while looking inside a jet engine ” How am I going to remember how to fix this?”. Once lunch had been consumed we set off once again, this time to the London Eye. Incredible views were enjoyed and a fear of heights was conquered. Lifelong memories were being created in front of our eyes. Our final stop on our whistle stop London tour was the Houses of Parliament. Although we all had tired legs we were overwhelmed by the history and significance of the building. The highlight was most definitely being able to vote in the lobbies before wandering into the green of the Commons – a place brimming with British history. And then it was time for home. What a fabulous trip!
