Pupils from Childwall CE Primary School were delighted to receive an invitation to visit 10 Downing Street after they wrote to the Chinese Premier, Li Keqiang to thank him for allowing the Terracotta Warriors to visit Liverpool.
The school were asked by Liverpool World Museum to be part of a diplomatic gift which includes letters and artwork to be taken by the prime minister and presented to the Chinese premier. After an epic photo shoot at the entrance of 10 Downing Street, the pupils were invited inside.
They were thanked for their wonderful letters and artwork that formed part of the diplomatic gift that was delivered by the prime minister. They heard how Li Keqiang loved their letters and hearing about their excitement of the trips to visit the Terracotta Warriors and enjoyed seeing their drawings of the warriors and of the Liverpool skyline.
The pupils then continued their tour of the capital with a visit to St James’s Park where they had a well-deserved sit down and ice cream break before they headed to Buckingham Palace.
