Form 1 Trip to London Eye

Posted on: July 1st 2016

It was with great excitement that Form 1 set out on 21st June for our trip to the London Eye. On arrival in Central London, we enjoyed a quick snack near the river, then queued in the sunshine to board our capsule. We were rewarded with spectacular views in all directions and the children were quick to spot some of the landmarks that they have learnt about in our topic lessons. These included St Paul's Cathedral, Buckingham Palace, the Palace of Westminster, the Shard and even Wembley Stadium in the far distance.

After a picnic lunch, we concluded our trip with a river cruise aboard the 'Silver Bonito', accompanied by a lively and interesting commentary. It was fascinating to learn that the Golden Jubilee Footbridges were designed in a similar style to the London Eye and that Waterloo Bridge was built exclusively by women during the Second World War. Unsurprisingly, this bridge was built on time and within budget!

The children particularly enjoyed spotting the Tower of London and The Monument and discovering that Big Ben refers to the bell inside the Queen Elizabeth Tower, not the tower itself.      

It was a great trip! Big thanks to Mrs. Bolton for organising the day.
