Trip updates:

Wednesday 7th June

1.30pm - After a good sleep, and another lovely breakfast we have walked down Carnaby Street to China Town. A quick stop off at M&M world we then headed to Trafalgar Square and on to Whitehall. We were greeted by one of the guards for a quick photo and then on to Downing Street. Rishi was busy preparing his PMQ notes so we continued to Parliament Square where we heard plenty of protesters! After that, we headed along Horse Guards and watched some of the changing of the guard ceremony. Up the Mall to Buckingham Palace where the King was also a little busy to pop out and see us although Prince Harry did drive past (he didn’t have to wave though). Lunch in front of the palace and we are now back on the coach and heading home. Children (and adults) have walked a total of 21 miles during the three days! The children have been an absolute credit to the school and parents with their kind manners and organisation. See you all soon!
