Burrington Primary visit Exeter

On Tuesday the whole school enjoyed a trip to Exeter to have an in-depth tour around the Cathedral. 

After our exciting train journey from Eggesford to Exeter, we split into two groups and with some extremely informative guides, found out all sorts of intriguing facts about the Cathedral.  Following this we all made stained glass window ‘shrinkies’ key rings and learnt how to take brass rubbings.  These will all be displayed in the hallway of school for you to share.  After lunch in the garden we walked down to the Museum and had a really good look around the exhibitions by way of a fairly tricky quiz.  Mrs Walsh’s team were the winners, finding all the answers ahead of the time allotted – Well done to Team Walsh!  Back on the train and home to an early bed for many of us!  Thank you to all parents and carers who were so punctual with both departure and pick up.   It was a lovely day and a great trip and it was a great opportunity for Mrs Dodd to spend the whole day with us, getting to know the children so much better.  Thanks to Mrs Dodd for coming with us.
