One of the girls’ surprises this month was a girls’ day in London. We started the day at the Natural History Museum, something that had been on Jane Anne’s London list for a while, and having just seen Paddington, we were especially keen on going there. We spent most of the time in the Hall of Mammals (luckily there was no case for Paddington!), particularly enjoying the Blue Whale skeleton and replica.
We also enjoyed seeing a dinosaur fossil discovered by Mary Anning and fascinating hands-on geological activities.
Of course, one can easily work up a hunger in a museum, so we headed over to Fortnam and Mason for a spot of tea.
And, finally, we ended the day, by seeing Matilda, Roald Dahl’s classic made into a musical. We’d read read the book earlier in the semester and loved seeing it come to life. Trunchbull was particularly fun!
Then it was back on a late train to Oxford. Such a fun day with my favorite girlies!
