YEAR 5 and 6 LONDON VISIT
On Tuesday 16th May, Years 5 and 6 went on an exciting trip to London. We took the 7am Hovercraft to Portsmouth which took around 10 minutes. Everyone was really excited, so the long ride was worth it. At about 11:15am, we arrived at the Science Museum and Natural History Museum. About an hour later, everyone jumped back in the bus to eat lunch. Year 6 got the best view as most of us were on the top layer of it. Next we all went to Shrek’s Adventure. Four Year 6s had to join Year 5 through the 4D adventure. Mr Simpson was embarrassed by Cinderella who made him stick his hand down Shrek’s toilet. That was his favourite part. When we had seen all of the characters and taken pictures, everyone queued up for the London Eye. When we finally got on, we were split into two groups. There were so many famous buildings that you could see from way up at the top. Some of us made the mistake of looking down when we were at the highest part. After around 30 minutes, we all got off and had a walk down the Thames. There was a really funny comedian and a carousel. Then finally, we got to Pizza Express and had our dinner. Most people had pepperoni but some had cheese. The dessert was absolutely delicious (it was chocolate cake or ice-cream). Sadly, after dinner, our fun day was over and we had to get back on the bus and start our journey home. We sang a lot of songs but quite a few people fell asleep. Overall we all had an amazing day and would gladly do it again. We recommend it to next Year 6 and Year 5. Written by Macey and Zac, Year 6.
Thank you to Mr Simpson for organising the visit and also to Miss Denham, Miss Bridle, Mr Bound, Mrs Crook, Mrs Hayes, Mrs Woodhouse and Mrs Hawker who went with us on the visit.
We have had an incident in school this week when a child who brought a jellied fruit string snack to school in their lunch box, got it stuck in their throat and nearly choked. Please ensure that you do not send your child into school with these type of fruit snacks as they can be a choking hazard. Thank you for your co-operation.
Advance notice that Bright Sparks will be closed for a development day on Friday 9th June. They will however operate a breakfast club for children attending Summerfields but will not be offering an after school club on this day.

You have brains in your head,
You have feet in your shoes,
You can steer yourself in
