Our Trip to East Fortune by Rebecca K.
Yesterday P5/6 went to the Museum of Flight because we were having a Draft Day for our World War 2 project. We went by public bus. Mr Smythe took us but Holly’s Dad, Caitlin’s Mum and Niamh’s Mum came along too.
It was a remarkable experience that I will never forget!
First a short, kind lady called Sue greeted us. She took all of us to Hangar 1 to see Concorde, a once-in-a-lifetime experience. It went twice the speed of sound. Astonishing! When we went inside it was amazing how many buttons there were in the cockpit.
Next we went into a biggish room and this is where the fun started! We all started to learn how to march. It sounded so realistic! There was a table with a bright blue cover over it to make it a bunkbed, then we learned how to lay out our uniforms in the morning. Some of us tried them on – they were humungous!
After that we all had lunch. I had pizza, coke, banana, penguin and a thick malteser smoothie. Yum! Once we all finished, Mr Smythe and Sue let us play outside for five minutes.
Next we all went to Fantastic Flight and we played lots of interactive games. My favourite was the “in a spin” game. I was furiously fast.
In the end we all went back on the bus and got back to school okay. I will always remember this day.
