Oystercatchers invade Exeter!

Posted on

Last week, we had the most fantastic (and busy!) day exploring some of Exeter’s attractions.

The day started with a trip to the Apple Store in Princesshay shopping centre. The staff there gave us our own Apple t-shirts and some brand new iPad Pros to experiment with for an hour. We learned about coding and started creating algorithms that led a dragon through a series of puzzles. We were all given certificated to round off a fantastic ICT experience.

Then it was off to the RAMM museum for an hour of history. We looked at all the exhibits we had time for, and even got to handle some REAL Roman artefacts with some of the museum staff!

Lunch came next in the shadow of the Cathedral. Some children even got to add pieces to the charity Lego model of the Cathedral. We also saw a sculpture made from some of the burned timbers from the ill-fated Clarence Hotel.

Next we went under the city! We had a guided tour of the underground passages and learned more about the history of the Exeter, and it’s fair to say that some of us conquered our fears by going through the narrow tunnels right underneath some of the biggest buildings in Exeter.

We had a fantastic time and learned so much from our trip.

Many thanks to the staff at Apple, the RAMM, the Underground Passages, and of course to Mrs Tremlett, Mrs Ward and Miss Barker who all helped with the trip.
