Do Something Different Day
Our 'Do something Different Day' seems to have been a resounding success, with lots of reports coming in about all the lovely things everyone did. At school, children had an amazing time in the sunshine dancing, doing newspaper shield challenges, having water fights to test those sheilds and roasting marshmallows around a campfire!
Other people went to the Science Museum, London Aquarium, Madame Tussauds, The Clink Museum, Willows Activity Farm, Paradise Park and many more.
We are building a celebration Gallery here. If youd like to add your photos, and share the fun you had, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll add them.
Some of the comments so far...
"Thank you for giving us the opportunity to 'do something different' today. Our Family all enjoyed a wonderful day out in London visiting the Clink Prison Museum where we saw and heard about the oldest prison in Britain. We saw some gruesome and scary torture instruments and were even able to try some out (unfortunately we had to release Mr Floyd from the torture chair).
We then visited the Cross Bones Graveyard, a post medieval disused burial ground a few hundred yards from the prison where over 15,000 poor women and children were buried in unconsecrated ground.
We then took a short stroll to Borough Market where we were all challenged to drink a Wheatgrass shot - a super super food! Wondering through the market on such a wonderfully sunny day in London was a real treat. We enjoyed a lovely lunch, bought some fresh pasta and treated ourselves to some brownies and cookies from the cake stalls.
All in all, we had the best day off. We came home tired but full of lovely memories of a very special day. Thank you!"
"They (the children) went to Grovelands park in the morning to splash in the stream in their wellies and in the afternoon they went to work with Mummy helping out her reception class. They played with the children and helped them with their writing.
They really enjoyed their day! I think it was a great idea and hopefully it will be repeated another year."
"We took them to Lee Valley Park Farm. Where they played, went down a giant hill slide, climbed a spider net tower, fed lambs and jumped on a massive pillow."
