Year 6 pupils have had the opportunity of a visit to our Capital city, for the 3rd year in a row, in the aptly named ‘Kip on a Ship’ trip. Some of the Year 6 pupils travelled down to London on Wednesday for a full day of sightseeing and activities, to include The Houses of Parliament, Horseguards Parade, Admiralty Arch, Buckingham Palace, Tower Bridge, No. 10 Downing Street and a trip on The London Eye. This all rounded off at the end of the day with a visit to the Lyceum Theatre to see The Lion King. They then headed back to HMS Belfast for the kip part of their trip.

The following day saw them arise to a hearty breakfast and a tour and workshop on HMS Belfast itself. The children then gathered their belongings and headed for The Tower of London to see The Crown Jewels and take the ‘Torture at the Tower Tour’. It was then time for us to make our way home after a jam packed non stop 2 days. I’m reliably informed that one of the children’s pedometers had 50,000 steps on it. No wonder! The amount that was experienced in just 2 days. Well done to all the children for their behaviour and a huge thank you to both the staff at Hull Children’s University and Burlington Junior School for their support and involvement.
