Organising a School Trip

The class teacher has arranged a school trip to the castle to learn more about Henry VIII. She is talking to the students about the schedule of events…

Mrs. Berbroke: Good morning everyone?

Student: Good morning, Mrs. Berbroke!

Mrs. Berbroke: As you already know, we are going on a trip to Hever Castle this Friday. I’m going tell you the plans now.

Student: What time does the bus leave?

Mrs. Berbroke: The bus leaves at 8.30 in the morning. We will meet at the main entrance to the school.

Student: What time does the bus arrive at the castle?

Mrs. Berbroke: The bus arrives at the castle at 10.45 and the tour starts at 11. Lunch is planned for 12.30 in the Banqueting Hall.

Student: That sounds amazing! What is planned for the rest of the day?

Mrs. Berbroke: At 1.30, we have a lecture with Henry ‘Blowers’ Blofeld and at 2.30, we go to the theatre to watch a short film. Between 4 and 6, you are free to rest or take a walk in the beautiful gardens surrounding the castle. Dinner starts at 6 in the Banqueting Hall. Finally, the bus leaves at 8 o’clock - Don’t be late!
