Visit to Bury St Edmunds

Standard

Today we went to Bury St Edmunds. Our teachers asked us to take pictures of things old and new in the Abbey Gardens.

Next, we did the charity shop challenge. That is when we have to buy an outfit for our teachers for only £5. They will wear these during the fashion show.

Finally we had a lot of time for shopping. Jack bought 12 bottles of Coke and Pepsi, Jean bought mine craft Steve and we all bought sweets.

In the evening, we had a treasure hunt. The questions were tricky but three of the six teams managed to find the treasure!
