Class 9 went to the Battersea Cats and Dogs Home. We met the author Jaqueline Wilson and she signed our books, including the school's copy of Paws and Whiskers. We had the opportunity to visit the Battersea Cats and Dogs Home because one of the pupils in year 5 won a national prize, and the prize was the visit! We met a few of the workers at Battersea with their pets, including 14 weeks old Elsie, who did a few cool tricks like walking on her owner’s feet! We also met two teeny baby pugs and not forgetting Jaqueline Wilson’s dog, Jackson. She told us stories of her two cats. We enjoyed our day at Battersea and we hope to visit again.
It was really exciting going to Wrotham in Kent. It took approximately 45 minutes to get there and all of us enjoyed the coach journey with our friends. When we got there we had to get into groups. We got into two groups so that we could start the activities, there were three activity choice:, high ropes wall, climbing and archery. Wall climbing was a bit scary because you had to climb really high- some people were petrified! High ropes were really hard because if you didn't work as a team, you couldn't go in the right direction. We had sooooo much fun!
