This half term the children in Reception (and some of their parents) had the opportunity to visit West Ruislip Lido. We took a coach all the way across the city and although the journey seemed very long it gave us a chance to see and talk about some of London’s landmarks. We drove past the Bank of England and the Gherkin building, which we all agreed was a very interesting shape.
When we arrived at the Lido we took a train ride through the woodlands and tried to see if we could find the Gruffalo or even Little Red Riding Hood, but sadly we didn’t see anyone.
We had a picnic on the sandy beach and then had lots of fun exploring, playing games and wading in the water. Some of us got very wet! We were all having so much fun that we wished we didn’t have to leave. But of course we had to come back to school and we were all very excited to tell our parents what we had done on our day at the Lido.
