Welcome to Squirrel's Class
Day 2 London Residential
Wow...what a busy day we had! Up early for our coach journey to the Houses of Parliament. It was very exciting to see press tents being set up for the budget interviews later in the day as we were queuing to go through security. We got checked through and taken up to meet our local M.P. who told us a bit about his role and how parliament works. We then had a great tour with a tour guide who told us all sorts of fascinating things about this incredible building. We even got to see The Speaker process into the House of Commons with the golden mace.
After lunch we headed to the Imperial War Museum, which was moving and fascinating. Tea-time back at the hotel was followed by an evening tour on our bus. The Christmas lights are beautiful. Then all back to hotel and settled for a good night's sleep.
Day 1 London Residential
Great visit to The Mix - rather wet but we enjoyed the Big Sing with about 1000 other children, singing opera with The Royal Opera House, a Lindy Hop workshop and learning to play P-Bones!
Big Bang 2017
On Friday our class (Squirrels class) went to Great Torrington School to take part in the Big Bang Science Day. We got to our first introduced activity a bit late but it didn't stop us having fun. We went to one of the classrooms and the teacher introduced himself and explained what we had to do. We got into three groups for three activities. The first activity was trying to solve a murder! Adam - Year 6.
