P7 trip day 1

22nd May 2017

The early start didn't seem to dampen spirits as we departed school at 5.45am to cheers from children, and tears from parents. We had a very smooth crossing to Cairnryan, then a 2 hour bus journey to Gretna Green where we had lunch. A game of touch rugby broke out for the boys while the girls tried not to get lost in the maze. Another bus journey got us to the Life Science Centre where we got to do some food experiments, watch a 4D movie, visit the planetarium and visit the exhibitions. We arrived at the hotel to lots of cheering at 7pm, and are currently tucking into a dinner of lasagne/pasta/chips/garlic bread/wraps which is followed by chocolate cake. There are lots of tired children, so it will be hopefully early to bed to recharge the batteries before a fun packed day at Kirkley Hall tomorrow!
