It was a wonderful Wednesday for our young students, as they had a mid-week excursion to Legoland!
The theme park is located in Windsor, not far away from St Mary’s School, and therefore it was an ideal location for the first Ascot adventure of the summer. The students went on wild rides, played fun games and saw whole worlds made out of tiny bricks!
They made a splash as soon as they arrived, with a brilliant boat ride, posing for photos as they idled past on the water. Several of the students showed off their impressive map-reading skills, using the maps to pinpoint the attractions they were most interested in.
The students were also able to look at one of Legoland’s most impressive features; the magnificent Miniland, which details some of the world’s most iconic monuments and cities. Miniland has animated models, as well as electric trains and cars which bring places like London and Paris to life. It is made of more the 40 million Lego bricks!
Some of the other highlights were more amazing rides, such as the Viking River Splash and the Spinning Spider, as well as seeing Windsor Castle in the distance. The students also made the most of Legoland’s many fun arcade and fairground games, trying out basketball and other challenges. They were rewarded for their efforts with some awesome prizes, including a number of large stuffed toys!
Overall, it was a brilliant day, with students enjoying the trip enormously and smiling from start to finish. Lessons resume on Thursday, but after seeing so many amazing Lego creations, they’ve certainly built the foundation for a fantastic end to the week.
