Our journey started on the 10th of March, when we crossed the English border via the Eurotunnel and arrived in Brighton. We then made our way into the SEA LIFE Oceanarium, where we saw many interesting species of sea life and had the opportunity to touch some starfish. Our next stop was the Royal Pavilion, which was a famous place of residence of George Prince of Wales. It was a shining example of 19th century architecture, influenced by buildings of the Victorian era. The day ended with arriving at our host families where we would stay for the next two nights.
On our second day we visited the Natural History Museum inside of which we were able to learn more about the fascinating secrets of our planet. Following that, we toured the wonderful city of London. During the aforementioned tour, we saw St. Pauls Cathedral and other breath-taking landmarks in the capital.
During the next two days, we explored other places of great historical and architectural significance, such as the famous Stonehenge and the city of Bath, among other things. Each of those locations gave us a new insight into the national heritage of Great Britain. We travelled to the westmost point of the British mainland, commonly known as Lands End, where we gazed upon the awe-inspiring sights of the cliffs of England.
It was an unforgettable experience. We are looking forward to our next school trips.
Last Wednesday class 3B spent their day together with a group of students from Denmark. They began with a workshop in English on various topics related to culture, history and social science in mixed teams. Later on students from both classes took a walk around the Jewish quarter, Kazimierz. During that they visited seven synagogues presented by our students and explored the historical area.

At the end of November the 4th and some of 3rd grade students went on a trip to London. The bus drive was extremely long and exhausting. The program was tight, so we were bound to start sightseeing right after we arrived. Our plans for the day included visiting museums, London districts – Greenwich and Canary Wharf (the latter was a mixture of glass, skyscrapers and modern architecture), a ride in a cable car above the Thames. Despite the rain, the ride was calming and enjoyable. In the evening everyone finally met their host families. They dearly welcomed us and were very friendly. Next day we went to see Oxford and Windsor Castle. It was a great opportunity to learn a little history and see absolutely incredible chambers and surroundings of the estate. Weather also surprised us, because it was wonderfully warm and sunny. The weather combined with stunning views perfectly reflected the charms of autumn. Every day we were visiting different museums, for example my personal favourites – the Natural History Museum and the British Museum. We also had the pleasure of admiring the panorama of the city from different perspectives, the one from the London Eye and the other from the observation deck on the top of St. Paul’s Cathedral. Of course, there had to be time for the most famous landmarks such as the Tower of London, Buckingham Palace or the one and only Big Ben. One of my favourite places was Chinatown. We could try a variety of Asian street food and appreciate the unique architecture and decorations. Of course, these are not all the places we went to, describing every single one would be simply too long :). To wrap it all up, the trip was definitely full of wonderful and breathtaking places and views and it also was an opportunity to learn a little about them. It was a different experience for every single person and I think everyone got to take something for themselves from it.
