Year 2 Trip to St Paul’s Cathedral

This half term Year 2 have been learning all about The Great Fire of London and what an incredible trip we had recently! Year 2 embarked on a breath-taking adventure to visit the magnificent St Paul’s Cathedral. The day was filled with excitement, wonder, and great behaviour.

The tour was simply amazing! We explored every nook and cranny of the stunning cathedral, learning about its rich history and architectural marvels. We even had the opportunity to climb up to the very top of the building, where we were rewarded with panoramic views of the cathedral below. It was an experience none of our students will ever forget.

But what made this trip truly special was the exemplary behaviour displayed by our pupils. Their conduct was nothing short of exceptional. They listened attentively to our guide, asked intelligent questions, and showed respect towards the cathedral and its surroundings. It was wonderful to witness how well-behaved and courteous our students were throughout the entire excursion.

We would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all the children for their outstanding behaviour and our amazing parent volunteers. They not only represented our school admirably, but they also made the trip enjoyable and memorable for everyone involved. Well done!
