Year 2’s Educational Trip to the Tower of London
On Tuesday 20th October we set off from School at 7.30am. We were all very excited to be finally going on our trip to London. We had learnt so much about our great Capital City and were eager to be on our way!
We discovered that many of us had never been to London before, so this was a chance of a life time to discover something new about being a British Citizen.
As we arrived in London, about midday, we were constantly looking out the window to see who would see the Gherkin first, or Big Ben. Every time we passed a clock face someone would shout, “Is that Big Ben?” When we finally arrived at the Tower, the cannons were being fired. We could not believe our eyes. The grounds were beautifully kept and there were so many buildings to see and explore.
The main thing we all wanted to see was the crown jewels belonging to the royal family. The week before, we had written all about this in our Big Writing. It was absolutely amazing to see the jewels for real.
We watched the guards guarding the crown jewels, they didn’t smile or move for a very long time and then all of sudden the one nearest us began to march up and down. We were all amazed.
As we walked around we met Queen Anne, the wife of King Henry, she spoke to us and introduced us to her lady in waiting.
It was a brilliant day and we all said we would return again and bring our families.
