Year 6 - Hoi An Expedition

The Year 6 children have had a wonderful time away in Hoi An this week.  The group departed early on Tuesday morning, very excited with their bags packed, all prepared for their big adventure.

Hội An Expedition

They had been working towards this over the last few weeks, learning about the ancient town of Hoi An and how it has grown and developed as a centre for tourism in Vietnam.  On Wednesday children spent the morning visiting some of the famous sights of the town to get first-hand experience of the things tourists may be keen to visit.   They then spent time talking to tourists about the reasons why they had chosen to visit Hoi An and their feelings about the town.  The children had prepared their own questionnaires for this and next week they will analyse the data gathered and compare this with their own views of the town.

Hội An Expedition

In the afternoon they experienced some traditional crafts famous in Hoi An such as the silk lantern industry and rose dumpling making.  Thursday gave the children an opportunity to learn about more about traditional cultivation techniques and local pottery followed by a xich lo tour around the streets of Hoi An.

All in all it was a wonderful, if tiring week, and one that the children and staff will remember for a very long time.
