Tina was invited along to meet the students of Chacewater Primary who've got loads going on with a visit from a special teacher on exchange visit from China. 

 

Tina enjoys lunch with a Chinese theme - in honour of their visiting teacher - and Tina sounds like she is stealing crisps - tut tut!

 

It seems that the kids are just fantastic with their maths and the 99 club plus quiz players on the thousand pound minute. And they are going on some amazing visits - including to London. 

 

We meet Holly who invited us to visit the school plus hear from the choir who have learned a special song of welcome for their Chinese visitor.

Thanks everyone for sharing your school dinners with Tina.

The first driving test was taken in 1935 by Mr Beene of Kensington on 16th March and cost him 37.5p in today's money terms.

So we thought we'd celebrate with a classic Mr Bean clip
