08:45 - the coach has departed, everyone has been to the loo, and the air conditioning is working! But the big question on all the children's lips is: Can we watch a DVD?
11:26 - We're just pulling into central London. No one has been sick, spirits are high, lots of famous landmarks spotted already ... and a BMW i8! Two boys in particular are very excited to see that.
12:00 - After arriving a little later than expected, we stop for an early lunch in the Turbine Hall.
12:45 - We are enjoying exploring a room with art works around a theme of energy and movement. Lots of pieces of art are making us ask the question "is this really art?'
13:30 - A very interesting video about visually impaired artists drawing and painting portraits, and some interesting sculptures that make us question what is valuable, and what is junk.
15:00 - The coach has just departed and we are enjoying some very contemporary 'art' - traffic! Everyone talking about favourite sculptures and paintings, sharing sketches, eating Twixes and relaxing after a fantastic day.
A huge thank you to all of the parent helpers who came with us to lead groups around the museum.
