On Friday 3rd May, Year 5 went on a fabulous school trip to Camden Market, as the launch for this terms’ project, ‘The Market Economy!’ Along with Brad, Janet and Michelle, we explored the market stalls and studied the goods on offer. Some of the most common sale offerings were souvenirs – generally along the lines of “I Love London” (which we do!!). There was also a whole lot of designer orange juice, Doc Marten boots, jewellery and quirky paintings. We absolutely loved this trip and can't wait to go back!
