Learning together, growing together

Year 6

Edinburgh 2017


What a fabulous week we have all enjoyed in Edinburgh. We set off from school on Monday for the capital city of Scotland full of excitement and the trip didn't disappoint. The children experienced a variety of museums and attractions including Mary King's Close, Scotland's Secret Bunker, Aberdour Silver Sands, Edinburgh Castle, Dynamic Earth and The National Museum of Scotland. This was backed up with our nightly ventures into the hills and mountains Edinburgh has to offer including Arthur's Seat and Calton Hill. Year 6 were a credit to the school as they always are - five members of the public stopped us to inform us we were the most polite and well behaved group of children they had met...AWESOME Y6!
