Year 5 End of Year Visit to Greenwich

On Tuesday, Maroon and Turquoise classes set off for Greenwich via the Elizabeth and DLR lines. Although it was a glum looking day, the looming rainclouds could not curb our excitement on visiting this historical area. Upon arrival, we meandered along the River Thames, observing the ebbing tide and spotting some famous landmarks such as the Old Royal Naval College, the Cutty Sark Clipper, the O2 across the water and even The Shard in the far distance. We then headed towards The Queen's House with its iconic columns and found shelter from the pouring rain inside the Maritime Museum. The museum has many fascinating areas to discover! It was soon lunchtime, and we headed back to the columns near the Queen's House, where we enjoyed lunch with a view. Our adventure was far from over, as we took a detour via the Greenwich foot tunnel, first opened in 1902, towards Island Gardens station, where we boarded a DLR train, making our way back to Manor Park. It was a jam-packed day which we will remember for a long time!
