Event - Year 6's London Trip

20 to 22 May 2013

To give our oldest children an experience of a completely different environment to the one that they know, each year we take our Year 6 children to London for a few days.

It is a way of broadening their understanding of the world, giving them a truly memorable experience before they finish Primary education and allowing them the opportunity to spend time away from home with their friends from school.

We stay at Rotherhithe Youth Hostel and visit all of the major tourist sites, as well as (this year) the Natural History Museum and HMS Belfast. We even managed to get to see 'Wicked' at the Apollo Theatre.

The children returned very tired but full of special memories and tales to tell!
