Autumn 2, Week 3: Our London Trip!

Stars of the week: All of Reception!

Well done to all of Reception, who were SUPERSTARS on their first ever trip! All of the children (and our adult helpers!) were great on the trip. Not only were they able to spot lots of famous London Landmarks, they listened carefully to instructions and stayed together to keep everyone safe. Well done all of you! You have made all of your teachers very proud!

We had a wonderful time on Wednesday, taking four different modes of transport around London to see some of the key London landmarks. Fortunately the weather was on our side and the sun shining!
We boarded the 381 bus to Waterloo, with a great view of the Shard. After disembarking at Waterloo, we walked to the South Bank, and took in the amazing view of the London Eye, as well as Big Ben and the House of Parliament beside the Thames.
We headed to Waterloo pier and boarded the Uber Boat (Thames Clipper) towards Greenwich. Also the river we saw amazing sites – the Oxo Tower, St Paul’s Cathedral, The Tate, The Globe, the Walkie Talkie, Southwark Cathedral, The Shard, HMS Belfast, the Mayors office, The Tower of London and Tower Bridge to name a few!
When we reached Greenwich, we were amazed to see the Shard from a different angle – it looked very small! After a sunny lunch by the Thames, neat the Cutty Sark, we jumped on the DLR to Bank. From Bank we took the underground back to Borough. We got back to school, we had tired legs, but it was worth it for a wonderful day!
Below are some photos of our trip!
Next week: Next week is assessment week, so we will be showing all of the wonderful learning that we have done, as well as consolidating our learning in Phonics. We will continue to reflect on our trip, making art showing the shapes of London. Next week we will be handing out the scripts for the Nativity play, so please start practicing lines at home.
