For a group of about forty Year 4 and 5 children the summer holiday got off to a fantastic start with a trip to London for the third Anniversary Games at the Olympic Stadium in the Queen Elizabeth Park. The games were established in 2013 to recapture the spirit and excitement of those great nights of athletics during the London 2012 Olympic Games. And with two British records and a WORLD RECORD on the night, it certainly lived up to everyone’s expectations.
The huge crowds all leaving the Olympic Stadium meant that it took quite a long time to get to the platform. The trains were crowded again but we soon got to Liverpool Street where we changed lines to continue to Farringdon. The Thameslink train to Luton was much less crowded and everyone was able to sit comfortably for the journey home, returning to school at 1 a.m.
