Legoland trip - 19 May 2016 Breaking with tradition due to a clash of dates, instead of joining the other 1260 clubs for the annual Kid’s Out trip to Whipsnade Zoo, we opted for an outing to Legoland for 30 children from Redways School. The two hour journey seemed to go really quickly, with all the excitement of anticipation, and we arrived in Windsor in time for an early lunch, waving to the Queen as we passed her castle, of course.
The group was a more challenging one than in previous years but the staff handled any problems with unerring patience, skill and humour led by Deputy Head Mike Russell.
Legoland is a different experience from Whipsnade: the amusements are not as spread out and there is more doing than watching. There are swings, merry-go-rounds, star wars “experiences” and an area where children can play around with their images in distorting mirrors. Lego figures are dotted around for photo opportunities. For the wheelchair-bound children who aren’t able to go in the boats, they can have great fun spraying their teachers and friends with water as they float by which seemed to be the more popular option!
