What a lovely morning we had at Butterfly World! It was such a shame it rained though and we couldn’t go to the amazing park nearby. Maybe next time…
We learnt all about the cycle of a butterfly, which was very interesting. We got to see each stage of the cycle in real-life as we walked round Butterfly World. We also got to see the cheeky and sleepy meerkats. They were very funny!
Furthermore, there were creepy crawlies like snakes and big scary spiders; luckily they were in their own tank! Phew!
There were gigantic fish too, all with different coloured scales. Beautiful.
We had our lunch on the bus due to the bad weather and then steadily made our way back to school, a little earlier than intended.
A super trip.
What a fab day! These children are so enthusiastic about everything they do – we have rocked in 60s style at the Beatles museum today, taken the ferry across the Mersey and explored a German U-Boat (sitting very carefully on the torpedo!).
We finished the day off with a trip to the cinema to watch the fantastic Alice through the Looking Glass. A brilliant day enjoyed by all!
A good first day in Liverpool! Interesting visit to the Maritime Musuem, exploring the Titanic and slavery exhibitions. We turned into Customs Officers in the basement, too, deciding who might be a smuggler and what we should do with them! After a yummy chicken burrito tea with chocolate pudding, we walked into the city then back to the youth hostel for Mr G’s quiz. After the results had been counted and verified, the winning team enjoyed their victory with a Haribo prize. Hot chocolate and supper led to a quiet and restful night ready for a busy day on Thursday. More to follow…!
