Year 3 Take Snaps of Shanghai to Share Around The World

05 February 2015

On Tuesday Year 3 went to three different places in Shanghai to take pictures that they will eventually use to make a movie that they will send through to their new class pals in Europe and Africa. Year 3 reporters, Mikel and Alvin from 3U, Betty, Izabelle and Rachel from 3X, and Elysia and Mia from 3S, tell us their thoughts on the day…

  • Year 3 students at the British International School took pictures around Shanghai of the Bund, People’s Square, Yu Yuan Gardens and the Sculpture Park

A selection of the photographs that the Year 3 children took on their trip

First we got on the bus and played with our friend next to us on our journey. When we arrived we got off the bus in pairs. 3S and 3B walked along the Bund whilst taking photos of interesting buildings.

3U and 3I took pictures of exciting towers and fun places to go in People’s Square. We saw the Pearl Tower, JW Marriott Hotel, the Government building and the Urban Planning Museum.

“There were buildings that looked like rocket ships and UFOs,” commented Justin.

Thomas loved going under the subway roads to get to the other side. Eduardo couldn’t believe it was so quick to cross under such a large, busy road!

3X and 3P went to Yu Yuan Garden and saw different beautiful statues. There were golden and ruby red temples that looked like charming palaces. We went on a windy bridge and saw golden and white fish swimming gracefully under the bridge. The gardens were beautiful. We saw pink cherry blossom on the trees and ancient Chinese buildings. We were most impressed by the great hall at the end of the gardens and enjoyed having our photo taken under the stage with 3P.

For lunch we went to the Sculpture Park in Jing’an. Some sculptures were spitting water, some had colours and some gave you information. There were also ones of animals.

Olivia in 3U said, “I really liked all the sculptures. There was an immense fox that was made out of straw. That was definitely my favourite.”

We really enjoyed our trip and have taken some great photos of Shanghai to share with our class pals in Zambia and Switzerland.
