They then spent time exploring the cloisters and the grounds of the abbey before spending time in the park.

The children were all lucky enough to sit in some of the old cars and some even got to sit in a Formula One racing car! During the afternoon the children took part in a workshop where they worked together to make model cars, firstly, by making the cars individually and then by working as a team using a production line. They discovered that they could make more cars in less than half the time if they all worked together.
