Year 7 'Taster Day'

Recently, the Year 6 children had the opportunity to visit BSB Shunyi to experience a day in Year 7 to help them prepare for their transition to secondary school after the summer holidays.

The children had a very interesting day participating in a wide range of lessons: Science, English, Maths and DT. They got to experience moving around the school for different lessons rather than staying in the same classroom and had morning break and lunch with the older students. As a bonus, they were able to spend some time with a group of current Year 7 students who supported them throughout the day and answered any questions they had. They were even fortunate to meet up with some of the students who came to BSB Sanlitun last year. Here are some comments from the children about their day in Year 7:
‘I used to fear secondary school but now I’ve realised that secondary school can also be fun! I liked constructing our own pencil pots in DT and using microscopes in Science.’
‘I enjoyed everything but I really enjoyed making the pencil pots as I enjoy making things out of wood and sanding things.’
‘I was amazed at the gi-normous football pitch. My highlights were maths and DT as I love maths (most of the time) and I love crafting things (all of the time)’
‘I enjoyed the science lesson and learning how to use a microscope.’
‘I enjoyed listening to poems in English.’
‘I enjoyed the day. It was great to have the opportunity to see how a day in Year 7 really is. The children helping us were great.’
