Freddy and Betty's adventures

29 Feb 2012

1.Freddy and Betty visited the Tower of London

No-one really knows when the White Tower was built, but it was probably started in the 1070's that's almost 900 years ago. King John (1199-1216) often stayed at the Tower and was probably the first king to keep lions and other animals there. You'll find the Crown Jewels under armed guard in the Jewel House at the Tower of London.The Imperial State Crown has 2,868 diamonds, 273 pearls, 17 sapphires, 11 emeralds, but Freddy and Betty weren't allowed to try any of them on!

Look at The Tower of London's website and go wow!

2. Freddy and Betty visited the Taj Mahal

It was built by Emperor Shah Jahan in the memory of his wife Mumtaz Mahal at Agra, India. Twenty thousand workers built it.
You can look at a website that lets you see inside the Taj Mahal!

3. Freddy and Betty visited the pyramids at Giza

The pyramids are in Egypt and were built over two thousand five hundred years ago.The big pyramids were for the Pharoahs and some of the small ones were for their wives. The Pharoahs were buried in a special room in the middle of the pyramid and lots of their most precious things were buried with them.
The British Council has a great cartoon to watch about Mummies

4. Freddy and Betty visited The Great wall of China

The Chinese worked on the Great Wall for over 1700 years. Each emperor who came to power added pieces of the wall to protect their dynasties. First Emperor Qin wanted a much better barricade to protect his people from the Mongol invaders to the north. He wanted a strong wall 30 feet wide and 50 feet high. Building the wall was a project that continued for many hundreds of years until the wall was over 3700 miles long.

Look on You Tube for great clips of Chinese music

5. Freddy and Betty visited The Leaning Tower of Pisa
The leaning Tower of Pisa is famous because it leans. It was designed to be perfectly straight, but started to lean when it was being built. It stands at 60 metres and until 1990 was leaning at about a 10 degree angle. TheTower of Pisa is more accurately referred to simply as the bell tower, or campanile. The Pisa tower is one of the four buildings that make up the cathedral complex in Pisa, Italy, called Campo dei Miracoli or Piazza dei Miracoli, which means Field of Miracles
Can you learn an Italian Nursery rhyme like we did?

After all that Freddy and Betty had a rest.
