Beddy Visits… Eureka!

Wednesday, May 25th, 2011

Today Matty and I stopped off at Halifax to visit the National Children’s Museum after our deliveries for The Daily Mail.

We learnt a great deal today but it felt like a day of playing! Dr. Lind taught us about how important vitamins are for our health and Scurvy Sam showed us the effects a bad diet can have on our bodies.

We would love to visit again soon as there is so much to learn and play with here!

Beddy visits…Cornwall

Wednesday, May 18th, 2011

This week we went to the Eden Project which is the world’s largest greenhouse and home to over 1 million plants.

We took an adventure deep into the jungle and learnt about nature and how important it is to look after our planet.  We also found out that chocolate comes from beans in the middle of the rainforest!

It was a great day out and Emily and I learnt a lot about growing plants!

Beddy visits…Cumbria

On our deliveries today, we went to visit the Beatrix Potter gallery in the Lake District where we saw the original paintings and sketches from Beatrix Potter’s books which we love to read!

We especially enjoyed seeing the original paintings of Flopsy, Mopsy, Cotton-tail and Peter Rabbit from the books which were published over 100 years ago but are still read by thousands of children today.

It was great to see all of her work together and brought back a lot of memories! Have you read any of the Beatrix Potter stories?

Beddy Visits…The Royal Armouries in Leeds

Wednesday, May 4th, 2011

I took a trip to Leeds in West Yorkshire today on our way to deliver some parcels for The Daily Mail.

When I was there I stopped at The Royal Armouries – a museum with guns, armour and knives!

We saw a live jousting match where two knights rode horses and aimed to knock each other off with their lances, apparently this was popular entertainment in the Middle Ages. Jousting is a very rough sport so no wonder the church tried to stop these tournaments hundreds of years ago.
