Streatley Day 2

Today we went to Blenheim Palace; the journey was long but worth it! We were taken on a tour by Mrs Norton. We learnt that there were 400 school boys evacuated to Blenheim and lived in the Palace during WW2. We also learnt that Winston Churchill was best friends with his cousin, the 9th Duke of Marlborough. There were lots of paintings and tapestries. We found out that John Churchill, the 1st Duke, was in all of the tapestries.  After that, we drew geometric shapes that we saw outside the Palace and in and around the gardens. After lunch, we rode on the train to the Butterfly House and Maze.  We saw some really big butterflies and some small butterflies. Then we went into the never ending maze. It was fun! We then went to Rollright Stones and wrote some poems. We got onto the buses and set off back to the Youth Hostel.
