Last month, Years 3 and 4 travelled to Paddington to board a barge, on which they had the opportunity of experiencing the Floating Classroom, a unique learning experience. They learnt all about the animals and plants that live around the canal area in Paddington and even navigated their way through the canals of Little Venice, passing landmarks such as London Zoo. William commented “I really enjoyed navigating through the tunnel as it was a little bit scary because of the darkness!”. Shay added “It was great when we went birdspotting as two of the class members even dressed up as massive birds!”.
The children really enjoyed this trip, which gave them a brief taste of life on the water.
