Colburn Primary School Year 6 students visit London

Year 6 children from Colburn Primary School celebrated a good year with a trip to London.

Staying at a youth hostel at St Paul’s, they used this as a base to experience the sights and sounds that London has to offer.

They climbed to the top of St Paul’s Cathedral, watched the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace, and learned how government makes decisions during a 90-minute visit to the Houses of Parliament.

They also fed the parakeets and squirrels at St James’ Park, met Pikachu in Trafalgar Square, found out amazing facts at the Natural History Museum and watched a performance of Matilda at the Cambridge Theatre.

They ended the two day visit with a 30 minute ride on the London Eye, giving them a birds’ eye view over London and they had fun spotting all the places they had visited.

Debbie Nicholas, interim head teacher, said: “The visit was able to take place due to generous donations from a variety of sources.

“The children’s behaviour was excellent and a member of the public commented on the children’s politeness and good behaviour whilst we were on the train. “
