London Poem

We are going to London and we are in Yr5,

In our Youth Hostel there are no hives,

We might see Big Ben,

The Queen rules greatly every now and then,

-Holly Davies

15:15 A workshop on making a pitch for a film. We're using a real prop from the film...Hargrid's hairy trousers to stimulate our creative sides. Unfashionable, itchy, oversized, well-stitched....great, but can you do better? The children are so engrossed, they haven't noticed that school has just finished....

  The staff room.....

12:00 Half an hour from lunch. It's been slow and wet. The south of England is mostly under water. We’re only just past Nortampton, as part of the M1 was flooded and we stopped for a swim….

  Rain, clouds, rain, puddles, rain, spray, rain....... ... 

Rain, clouds, rain, puddles, rain, spray, rain.......... 

Despite the slow progress, the children have been amazing. Lots of patience, plenty of minions and just a little bit of hunger…..

On the way to London, everyone is either writing in their diary about the day ahead or talking with their partner. We have been stuck in a little traffic yet, we are really excited about what's to come. We might even vlog a little later today! -Dylan
