School Trip: The Tower of London

We’ve been out and about this week! On Wednesday we visited the Tower of London and saw the Crown Jewels (and yes they are real!) We were also intrigued by the story of the Princes in The Tower and saw the very spot where the boys’ skeletons were believed to have been found under a staircase in The White Tower! 

    
    
    
   

Local Area Survey

We have been investigating the features of our local area, focusing on London’s Spitalfields Market. We decided upon a question we would like to investigate and then designed a survey to record the collected data. Questions included:

  • Which types of cuisine are available?
  • Which types of shops are there?
  • What’s the average age of the shoppers?
  • How much traffic passes the market?

Here are some photos of our visit to the market. We’re now in the process of analysing our data… Results will be posted soon!  

    
    
 

Sports: Football

This week Manchester United won the FA cup leaving Crystal Palace fans and players in tears as they defeated them.

Louis Van Gaal won his last trophy with Manchester United before leaving the team after two great years.  Manchester United scored their  first goal by Juan Mata as Wayne Rooney crossed the ball in to Mata with an amazing volley.

Manchester United were very happy to have won the FA cup for the forth time in twenty years!
