Wed 10th June - Updates from Year 5 in Xian
10 June 2015
Update from Mrs. Brown
Well if you thought yesterday was busy, today was insane!
After a filling breakfast at the hotel our first stop this morning was a visit to the terracotta warrior factory. Here the children learnt how the figures are made and had a chance to make their own mini clay warrior.
Then we headed off to the main attraction of the day-the site of the terracotta warriors. Groups explored pits 1, 2, 3 and 4 and watched a movie showing the history of the warriors. We also had lunch in the museum trying a selection of local dishes. The 'Chinese hamburger' was a popular favourite.
To cool off after exploring the extensive warrior site, we put on winter coats and visited snow world. The children (and teachers) loved the ice slide, tube ring, ice bicycles, posing with the carvings and exploring the ice buildings.
Next the children participated in a Chinese tea ceremony and tried a variety of teas before boarding the bus for the long ride back into town for dinner.
Finally we will head back to the hotel for some (much needed) showers and free time with friends.
