A group of 19 KS2 children enjoyed a busy day in London on Tuesday 13th September. Our first stop was the Princess Diana Memorial Garden in Hyde Park, where the children enjoyed climbing aboard the huge ship and hiding in the giant tepees. After, we walked past Kensington Palace towards the Diana Memorial Fountain, where we had lunch and enjoyed jumping across, and running around, the water feature. From there, we walked along to Green Park to lay flowers for the late Queen Elizabeth. It was a very memorable occasion.
Following the flower-laying, we rode a London bus past Piccadilly Circus and Trafalgar Square. We walked across the Thames to arrive at Southbank. The children were amazed at the size of the London Eye! We were then thrilled to board our own pod and explore London’s iconic skyline. We spotted the Houses of Parliament, just across the Thames. We had been due to visit whilst in London, but unfortunately that part of our day was cancelled due to the sad death of Queen Elizabeth.
The day ended with dinner in McDonalds, before heading back to Paddington Station to catch a train back to Hanborough. What a brilliant day!
