LONDON RESIDENTIAL TRIP DAY 5Today was our last day in London. We feel sad to leave London but happy at the thought of seeing our parents again. On our last morning we all had a big breakfast and packed up our bags ready to check out. After loading up the coach, we headed to Covent garden on the tube train. We have really loved riding the tube this week – it is such an exciting way to get around London and it saves waiting in traffic jams!After arriving at Covent garden, we watched a live string quartet performing and then a live opera singer!! We then walked to the Transport museum, which was just around the corner. The transport museum was packed with historic buses, trams, trains and coaches. We were allowed to explore all of the vehicles and evn go up to the top deck of the double-decker buses. There was a tube train simulator and amazing models showing how the underground network was constructed.We had our lunch at the transport museum and then headed off to meet the coach and head for home.Our trip to London was amazing! – It was hard to be away from home sometimes but we all learnt a lot about ourselves and our friends! It seems like a hundred years since we left St-Matts on Monday – we have learnt to be much more independent and grown-up!
