2013 Summer News Letter – Year 6 Isle Of White Trip

Lyonsdown prep school Year 6 have fun on the Isle of Wight

On Tuesday 22nd May, Year 6 set off to the Isle of Wight for 4 fun filled days exploring this wonderful island.
We set off to Southampton and before we knew it, we were on the beach at Sandown, searching for dinosaur fossils and learning something about the geological and prehistoric history of the island.
The evening saw us going for a stroll along the promenade, sketching the shore line and taking in the sea air and view.
Our time on the island included visits to Ventnor Botanic Gardens, Brading Roman Villa, Carisbrooke Castle and Osborne House amongst others. We even managed to squeeze in an evening on the beach, building sand castles, splashing in the waves and generally “letting our hair down”. Even Mr Shakesbear, the teddy bear – who came with us, had a great time too (and we managed to protect him for nasty Auntie Windsor and Auntie Brodie as well!)
