Kestrels visit The Houses of Parliament and the National Gallery in London!

In connection with work in class, Year 5 and Year 6 visited London today. Not only did we visit these two historic venues, but we also saw many of 'the sights' of London!

At the Houses of Paliament, we visited both The House of Lords and the House of Commons! We weren't allowed to take photos, except for at the very beginning and end of our visit, for security reasons. Here we are!

When we left we knew a lot more about democracy in our country.

After this we walked along Whitehall to the National Gallery, via...

Big Ben

Downing Street

Horseguards' Parade (we even saw the changing of the guard)

Nelson's Column in Trafalgar Square

Admiralty Arch, through which we could see The Mall and Buckingham Palace

At the National Gallery we enjoyed a workshop about landscape painting, collecting ideas that we can use when we paint landscapes. We saw some very famous paintings!

The Haywain by John Constable

The Bridge at Giverney by Claude Monet

Time for home, with many new memories to enjoy!
