Pupils from KS2 enjoyed a canal trip at Paper Mill Lock in Great Baddow. We went on the’Victoria’ with our friends from the Burnham Rotary Club. Reece and Kian stood at the front of the boat watching for fish, ducks and swans on the river.
Katy loved being on the boat as it was very peaceful and calm. Michael had a hard time deciding on which cake he wanted to have a piece of – Lemon, Victoria Sponge, Carrot Cake or Chocolate- a tough decision!
