In the last week of the academic year, as the Cambridge exams finished we took some of Level 2 and 3 students on an excursion to the great city of London. Flying via Prague airport 8 of our inquisitive students took a 4 day excursion to experience many new sights and culture in one of Europe's great cities and enjoy learning in a very different method to the classroom.
Over the course of the 4 days the students were out for at least 10 hours a day using London's public transport network to get around and see many different museums and cultural sights to give as broad an excursion as possible. Under the guide of native Mr Setchell, the students were able to visit (deep breath):
The British Museum
The Imperial War Museum
The Natural History Museum
St James\’s Park
Leicester Square (including M&M world and the largest Lego store in Europe)
The Tower of London
St Paul\’s Cathedral
A River Cruise down the iconic River Thames
The Olympic Park and Queen Elizabeth Stadium
Shakespeare\’s Globe Theatre
Greenwich Observatory and Royal Park
and of course a journey up the iconic London Eye!
The students took everything in their stride and behaved well and enjoyed all of these plus of course iconic food (Fish and chips!) tried terrible British accents and had smiles constantly, even when getting stuck in a lift (elevator) in the hotel and getting through London\’s tube (underground railway network). It was a great way to end the year and will certainly be an experience students can use in the future!
