Exeter’s Royal Albert Memorial Museum & Art Gallery

We’re visiting Exeter for a few days and thought we’d stop off at Exeter’s Royal Albert Memorial Museum & Art Gallery, partially because it was just so cold! It’s been a while since we last visited but as it was half term they had loads of special events for the kids to take part in.

They took part in a treasure hunt around the museum which was fun.

When they had found all the answers they were able to go and make their own Roman coin! They both enjoyed this activity. I hope we can visit again soon as there was so much we didn’t get to see.

A trip to Bhaktivedanta Manor

The best thing about being a SAHM is the chance to help on school trips! Today I visited Bhaktivedanta Manor, just outside Watford, with Year 2. It’s the most amazing place with a farm, temple and is really well set up for school visits. We spent day there and the children loved it!

I was allowed to take a photograph of my son in his special clothes – everyone looked amazing.

There was quite a lot to take in but this term Year 2 are studying the main religions. They asked lots of questions and enjoyed the experience.

As a parent helper I got to enjoy lunch too, in a separate room to the children! The food was amazing and all cooked by the lovely people who work at Bhaktivedanta Manor.

Bhaktivedanta Manor is such a welcoming place and I would recommend it if you get the chance to visit.

The Lego Batman Movie

Today we were invited to a special screening of The Lego Batman Movie in Leicester Square. I took Big Brother as he loves Lego and thought he would enjoy the film slightly more than his younger sister.

Before the film there was lots to do in the foyer, we queued up to get our photo taken!

The Lego Batman Movie

In The Lego Batman Movie, Batman goes on a personal journey to find himself and learn the importance of teamwork and friendship in the hopes of saving Gotham City from a hostile takeover set by The Joker.

It was a brilliant film and we both really enjoyed ourselves. There was so much detail though that we’ll definitely be going back to see it with the whole family again soon.

After the film we went for a delicious lunch with some other bloggers at Planet Hollywood before heading back to Leicester Square and queuing for ages to visit The Lego Store (again!).
