St Paul's Cathedral

Year 2 walked from London Bridge to the Monument and then climbed up the 311 steps to see the wonderful view from the top. The children decided to all join hands around the top to see if we could reach. The view was amazing and we were able to identify old buildings, buildings from Wren’s new design for London and more recent blocks of offices etc. We also tried to work out how long it would take us to walk to St. Pauls as we could see it from the top.

We then walked along Cannon Street to St. Paul’s where we had lunch in the gardens. I think you will see from the pictures that we were really lucky with the weather and our scenery for lunch. St. Pauls was amazing and we learnt lots from our tour guide, Judy. She told us all about the Great Fire (and we taught her a few things too). We were able to act out key parts of the story and you can see Elliott Pepys and Polly (Christopher Wren) wearing wigs and speaking in role. We didn’t climb to the Whispering Gallery as we had walked a long way already and there is only so much one can do in a day! We did however lie on the floor and look up at the beautiful dome and mosaics depicting the Easter story.

We then walked back to the station via the Millennium Bridge (try saying that when you are 6 and missing a few teeth!) and past the Globe theatre. We then caught our train and relaxed on the way home.

News from Hickstead

 The DH showjumping team had a good day at Hickstead yesterday where they competed in the Hurst Team Show Jumping competition.  

They were the only team where all four team members went clear. Sadly it is only the top 3 scores in each team which count so there was a jump off. One team member was chosen to ride in the jump off and this was Pheobe Harding. She rode absolutely brilliantly and managed another clear but unfortunately the team was beaten on time to fourth place. There was only 1 second between the top 4 teams!  

Well done Phoebe Harding, Harry Wilkins, Verity Leggett and Ottie Thrower - seen here with Tim Manly - Hurst Headmaster and Dorset House Governor.
