Year 5/6 London Residential 2016 – Day 3
Day 3 was just as exciting as the previous 2 days, although a little less energetic. We only walked 7 miles! We managed to see the changing of the Guards at Buckingham Palace and then had a march to the London Eye, where we caught the Thames Clipper to Tower Hill. Sitting out at the back was great fun with the water spraying in our faces and having to shout over the engine noise. Although the exhibition was crowded, the Crown Jewels were beautiful. It would be true to say that we all were flagging a bit at this stage of the trip. However the thought of Membury services and buying tea, kept spirits high. For one or two though, that comfy bus seat didn’t come too soon. So cute.
I’d like to say a big thank you to all the children for making this one of the easiest residential trips I’ve had the pleasure of leading. Not once, but three times we were complemented on how well the children conducted themselves in public, the last one being at Membury services when they were on their last legs. Well done all of you. I would also like to thank all adults volunteers for making the trip a great success. What great team work. I’m already looking forward to next year, a 5 day residential at Medina Valley Environmental Centre on the Isle of Wight. Watch out for a letter before the end of term with details.
