In Year 1 and 2, we have been learning all about London and got the chance to visit on Wednesday 13th October.
We piled on to the coach bright and early and set off. We were very excited!
When we arrived in the city centre, we headed for Buckingham Palace where we waved to the Queen and watched her guards playing instruments near the gate. It was a little tricky to see as there were loads of other people but we did watch a small group of guards marching in. After that, we walked through St. James’ park. We saw a huge lake with a fountain in it. Also there were lots of ducks, swans, geese and squirrels! We crossed a blue bridge and could see Buckingham Palace from it. After walking through the park, we went through Horse Guard’s Parade. There were some guards wearing enormous metal helmets.
As we had done lots of walking, we sat down in a little park overlooking the Thames and with a good view of the London eye. We had our lunch and then quickly got on our way to St Paul’s Cathedral. To end the day, we walked to Pudding Lane (the starting place of the Great Fire of London). It looks very different now to how it did in 1666!
When we finally returned back to school, our feet ached and we were ready for bed. It was such a fun day though!
