Sandy Lane – YEAR 5 trip to the Lexicon town centre regeneration site
Report by Ruby, aged 9, Kestrels Class
At the start of the school day, there was a huge rush of parents making sure that they got their children in on time. Because Year 5 had the special opportunity to see all of the arranged plans about the future Bracknell!
Once everyone was in the classroom and we had taken the register, we all got our warm and cosy wellies on and then got into about four or five groups. After that we got our hi-vis jackets and a few minutes later we were off!
When we got there, we all put our safety helmets on and met a lady called Ms. Kiz, who helped the teachers organise the school trip. In the meantime, two other groups went to get an amazing view from the top of Ocean House. Back at the building site, the other groups went up to the second floor car park and we asked the builders questions. Funnily enough we were even able to see Sandy Lane! Year 5 were also able to boss the controllers of the crane about! We made him do a 360 degree turn! After about twenty minutes of questions and fun it was time to switch around so that the other group could catch a glimpse of what it’s like to walk onto the amazing Lexicon!
