410 schools took part in the Codex 1300 project. We copied out a page from the actual codex called Peter and John do miracles it was about a crippled man outside the temple begging for money. Out of the 410 schools one person was picked for their work to go into the children’s codex and out of those 410 people six were chosen to go to London. When I was chosen I felt really shocked and I couldn’t believe it was happening.
On Wednesday 8th June me and the other participants set off at Grand Central in Sunderland. It was me and my dad, the other children were there with their parents apart from Dominic who was with his teacher. We were reserved for coach D normal class but it turned out that no seats in the first class were reserved so we got moved up into first class on the way there. I was even more excited about this it was the first time I went on first class and the first time I went on the grand central train. The journey took about 3 hours.
When we arrived at King’s Cross in London we got straight on our taxis to Lamberth Palace. THe journey took about half an hour to fifty minutes the traffic was worse than I ever imagined. At lamberth palace we saw the Archbishop of Canterbury and we got some photos with him. Then we walked across the Westminster Bridge to the Houses of Parliament and we just got in the Houses of Parliament in time because the rain was the worst in the world there was a huge thunderstorm coming over.
