Day two of the London trip has been just as action-packed as the first!
First, after a 7 am breakfast, we took the tube to Westminster. We saw Big Ben (which, unfortunately, was surrounded by scaffolding) and then the River Thames and the London Eye, before visiting the Houses of Parliament. When we were there, we had a tour of the building and learned lots of interesting facts!
After that, in the education centre, we learned all about laws and how they are created. We even had a Q and A session with Andrew Stephenson, the MP for Pendle.
Following a quick pit stop for lunch, we headed, via Downing Street, to St James’s Park. Wandering through the park, we got an ice cream before visiting the Queen’s house, Buckingham Palace!
Finally, there was just time to buy some souvenirs and take one final tube to Euston.
We are currently on the train to Preston and we will be back in Colne just after 7 pm. We’re sure everyone will sleep well tonight!
Thank you to Mr Benson, Mrs Wildman and Mrs Graham for making things go smoothly (apart from when Mr Bunyan sat everyone in the wrong carriage on the Preston train!)
Well done to all the children for representing the school so well – they’ve made us very proud!
