Y6 school journey

We have had the most amazing school journey to Bournemouth.

We all got on the coach and on the way to Bournemouth we stopped off at Salisbury Cathedral.  We had a tour of the cathedral and visited the museum where we saw one of the four original Magna Cartas.  We also had a workshop where we learnt about how church spires are made and we also made clay models of gargoyles.  When we arrived at Bournemouth we went to the beach where we played and had great fun.

The next day we went to Corfe Castle on the Swanage Railway.  Then we visited Studlands beach and in the evening we went ten-pin bowling.  It was a really great day.

We had more fun the following day when we had a tour of Monkeyworld and learnt all about conservation.  Then afterwards we visited the Oceanarium and saw many wonderful creatures including penguins, which were really comical.  Then more fun on the beach.

Wednesday was a really exciting day.  We went to the Action Centre and played on climbing frames and simulators.  We had a harbour tour and went on HMS Victory and saw the Mary Rose, which were really interesting.  In the evening we played crazy golf.

The next day we got on a chain ferry and went to Brownsea Island where we saw deer and red squirrels, as well as other small animals.  We were given magnifying glasses to look at little critters.  We also had an activity building dens out of wood.  This was the only day it rained and we got absolutely soaked even though we were sheltering in our dens.  In the evening we had a disco which was fantastic fun.

The last day we had to get packed up and come home.  We looked forward to seeing our families again, but we were very sad to leave.  The school journey was such fun and we absolutely loved it.  It was incredibly interesting as well as being educational.  We all thought the ice-creams were really nice as well!
