This half term we have been learning the finer skills of tennis under the supervision of Rob at the Devonshire Tennis Academy in Rock Park-we are really enjoying it!

London

We enjoyed an action-packed start to the new term with a trip to London. After an early start, we were fascinated by a tour of the Palace of Westminster. The tour consisted of a visit to both the House of Commons and the House of Lords as well as an educational workshop.

After a sunny walk along the Thames Embankment, the next stop was a visit to Tate Modern. The  contemporary artwork on show by artists such as Monet, Picasso and Rothko was amazing!

The final stop was the London Eye, which gave us an uninterrupted view across the city. We were challenged to spot famous sights such as St Paul’s Cathedral, the Shard and Wembley Stadium.
