Our Trip to London - By Cameron 6FS and Harry 5CC

On the 2nd of October we went to London. We left the school early in the morning and we were thrilled that we were on the coach for 3 hours.  We arrived at the Bloomsbury Theatre we went to watch horrible histories Terrible Tudors it was exiting but taught us about the Tudors at the same time (although history can be quite boring !!!) after the short break we were given boggle goggles (3D glasses ) it was quite scary as a skull came towards our faces. After, we went to the Museum Of London and had lunch. After that we discovered life in the Tudor era.  We talked with Abby in 6FS and she enthusiastically said it was awesome. Then we back to school to go home.

Horrible Histories Trip 2012

On the 2nd of October 2012 the years 5 and 6 went to the Bloomsbury theatre to watch the production of Horrible historys
'Terrible Tudors' and had a fab time. It was a hilarious production and it was an amazing performance and in part 2 it was 3D with 3D fireworks and 3D skeletons and stuff like that.
It was amazing because through out the show there was only four actors and actresses doing every single part.
Next, we went to the museum of london to answer a booklet about the tudors it was great fun and we all had a great day!!!!
