Years 5 & 6 At Parliament 2019
On Thursday 19th September Year 5 and Year 6 had the chance to go to London for the day to visit the Houses Of Parliament. (You just have to love the book Caleb chose to read on the way!) The children were really excited from the moment we got to Preston railway station as not many of them had been to the capital before.
Once we arrived at Euston, it was straight on the Tube to Trafalgar Square, then down The Mall to Buckingham Palace. From there, it was on to Parliament for an escorted tour. The children learned all about how the two houses and The Queen work together to pass laws and how democracy works in Britain. It was then back onto the Tube again, heading towards the stunning London Bridge and the Tower Of London. After lunch by the Thames, it was straight on to a tour of the warship H.M.S. Belfast, which the children and adults found fascinating. The trip back to Euston at rush hour was a little hectic but thanks to Virgin Trains, once there, it was totally hassle free. We had an amazing day out in the London sunshine and were very proud of how well-behaved the children were throughout the day.
International Dot Day
Today was International Dot Day, based around the story called The Dot by Peter H Reynolds which tells the story of a girl who thinks that she is no good at art - until she tries.
The story teaches children about self-confidence.
Today the children could come to school in something spotty and we had colourful spotty T-shirts, spotty faces, spotty bows and jumpers to name just a few. The children also did art based on dots.
Well done to those who joined in with our 'Dotty Day'
