On Monday 9th January Year 6 visited London where they are looking to change the world! After catching the 06.25 train from Hull and arriving in London they visited Houses of Parliament; the National History Museum; and Horse Guard and Foot Guard. Year 6 also went to a souvenir stall to buy little memories of their fantastic trip!
The pupils travelled on Hull Trains and once in London, travelled by tube and on foot and altogether, went on three tubes and two trains.
Whilst in the National History Museum they saw sculptures of Dinosaurs. Emily Beadle, a Year 6 child said ” I enjoyed going to the National History Museum the most. Whilst I was looking round the museum I took many pictures of dinosaurs to keep for in the future”.
Whilst the children were in the Houses Of Parliament they went in two very famous rooms – the House of Commons and the House of Lords. Following the tour, the children took part in a workshop where they learnt more about what an M.P. would do at work. Local Hull M.P. (Alan Johnson) came to talk to the pupils so they could ask him questions about him being a Member of Parliament (M.P.).
The full class had a great time! Faith Coombs said “I really liked the Houses of Parliament and the National History Museum. I couldn’t chose which one I liked the most because I loved it all!” The Year 6 pupils loved London and hope to go again sometime.

The visit, organised in conjunction with Hull Children’s University and the ever-enthusiastic and positive Dr. John Buttrick is all about inspiring young people that there is a big world out there that everyone can access.
