We got to do some workshops where the children took part in knight and jousting school in the moat of the Tower of London which is usually off limits to the general public.
We also were privileged enough to have an audience with Queen Elizabeth I and children were invited to ask her questions.
The children were beautifully behaved. One of the Tower of London supervisors who was also from Romford felt very proud that a school from her area had come for a visit and behaved so exemplary. We were also spoken to by a member of the public from Denmark who complimented how sensible and quiet our children were.
On the way back to the coach, we sought shelter under a shaded underpass and the children were ever so kind to offer a homeless person some of their spare change they hadn't spent at the Gift Shop. Our children are not only well behaved but kind too.
Here are a few photographs from the trip:
'We did jousting training and knight school in the moat at the Tower of London, these were my favourite parts of the day. I like doing these things because they are fun.'
'I really enjoyed today at the Tower of London. We got to see the Queen in the White Tower were we received a certificate and a trophy! Did you know that the White Tower has 104 steps!'
'At the Tower of London we saw Queen Elizabeth I and got to ask her questions. We also went tin the moat and learnt how to joust!'
