What's your most unusual school trip?

MORE views filmed by kids

Children in Cheshire have been taking part in an unusual school trip - visiting a museum and taking part in a Victorian-style funeral!

The funeral is not for real - although it's based on a true story - but pupils got to dress up and play the part of Victorian school children in order to learn about history.

It got us thinking - what unusual trips have you been on?
