On Friday 6th July, the girls in Chartwell House jumped onto a coach in their bright yellow t-shirts and caps and headed off to visit the home of Winston Churchill. It was a very hot day, but all the girls behaved brilliantly and had a wonderful time. When we arrived, we had a look round the rose garden and the girls played in the play house. We then split into three groups and had a tour of Chartwell House itself. The girls asked lots of sensible questions and even the very youngest girls in Reception found lots of interesting things to look at and talk about. After the house visit, we had a lovely picnic lunch in the grounds, in the shade of one of the enormous trees overlooking the lake, before visiting the shop to buy some souvenirs. In the afternoon, the girls visited the play areas, some played in the dens in the woodland and lots of girls played a fun game with some balls and beanbags. Despite the heat, everyone seemed to enjoy the day, though we were very relieved to get back on to the air-conditioned coach when it was time to return to school!
Thank you to Mrs Moore, Mrs Harrington, Mrs Dorey, Mrs Archibald and Mrs Cook for all their support with preparation for the trip and for their help on the day.
