MOTAT Thank You Letter

Dear Nathallie and the KPMG, 

My name is Jabal and I am a year 6 student at Point England School. Last week on Monday we went to MOTAT and I am writing this letter to thank you for being a helper on our school trip. My favourite part at MOTAT was the tram ride because I liked how the interior was all vintage,

 and I liked how there was information about the tram on the roof. Something else I enjoyed at MOTAT was the M-bots because it was fun doing the block coding and it was a bit challenging coding it but my friends were there to help. 

I really appreciate you helping us at MOTAT because it was really interesting learning new things with you and I like how our group had a fun time with you, 

Kind Regards, Jabal.
