Years 5 and 6 Residentials

Last week was a very exciting week for the children in Years 5 and 6 as they spent a week out on school on their residentials. Year 5 went to Xi’an and Year 6 went to Inner Mongolia.

The Year 5 children had a great time exploring the Terracotta Warriors and the old City of Xi’an with its bustling market area and Muslim quarter and walking along the ancient city wall.
 
The Year 6 trip was a great outdoor adventure for the children comprising of visits to the desert and the grasslamds as well as a city tour visiting museums, a milk factory and a monastery.

Below are some of the thoughts from the children about their trips.
 
Year 5
 
This time when I went to Xi’an I learned a lot. I know that I can’t stay with my parents all my life and as I get older I have to take more responsibility and learn how to take care of myself. - Megan
 
This trip was one of the most important trips I’ve ever had. I don’t remember a more spectacular experience in my life. - Cristiano
 
The trip to Xi’an taught me many things, and will definitely become one of the things I remember most about BSB when I grow up. – Chloe
 
In the residential, I had a great time. Peering into history and nature, all the things we learned this week was fabulous. - Victoria
 
Year 6
 
Our trip to Inner Mongolia was the best residential trip ever and the week seemed to pass by too fast. We learned the life story of Genghis Khan and watched a movie about him. We also learned about the culture of Inner Mongolians: how the yurts could be re-built and why, the skills of archery, horsemanship and wrestling and how these related to the armies fighting skills. - June
 
The sand in the desert was unbelievably golden and soft, though it does stop you from running fast! - Dorothy
 
We learned about the great Mongol leader Temujin (Genghis Khan) and discovered many ancient traditions. - Rory
