Lessons at No 10

On Friday 12th January, 19 children and 8 adults were invited to 10 Downing Street to attend a session entitled Lessons at No 10, an initiative of Mrs Murty’s.

The group travelled to London by train and upon arrival at No 10 joined another school for refreshments before embarking on a mini tour of the first floor and then a cooking session in the kitchens led by ex-marine Mike aka the ‘ Commando Chef’. The children cooked turkey and vegetable wraps with the Commando Chef on hand along with Mrs Murty. Feasting on their wraps in the State Dining Room the children ate alongside Mrs Murty and were able to ask her lots of questions about life at 10 Downing Street.

After an amazing morning the group hopped on the tube to the Natural History Museum and spent an afternoon on a voyage of discovery exploring many of the museum’s fantastic exhibits before boarding the train once more and travell back to Leeds.
