Reception Cubs Take A Trip On The River

09 April 2015

Blessed by sunny weather, the Reception Cubs went on a boat trip today down the Huang Pu River. Reception Class Teacher Emma Lunt, tells us about the trip.

Travelling by coach all the way to the Bund was just the start. On the way we wound around the elevated roads through the tall buildings and saw trucks and taxis police cars and cranes. The race was on to see who would spot the familiar Pearl Tower first!

Once we arrived, the children, with their parent helpers, very sensibly walked to the dock through the tunnel, onto the gangway and onto the boat. First were snacks and a drink as we watched the boat crew show us how to put on a life jacket- in case of emergency! The Reception Cubs know how important it is to stay safe.

Then we went upstairs onto the deck to take in the views some more and play a game of picture 'I spy', looking out for the weird and wonderful buildings along the riverside. The children enjoyed drawing the tall skyscrapers and the boats chugging along beside us. We saw cranes and diggers working on the docks and the long flat boats that carry the huge containers. The children were spotting all the different shapes in the buildings too, the fantastic Pearl Tower causing the most excitement- especially up close!

The boat turned around and we headed back to the dock where we sensibly walked from the boat and back onto the Bund and to our waiting buses. The journey back to school was a little quieter after such an exciting morning. A few children and parents even had a little sleep on the way back!

What a fantastic experience the Reception Cubs shared today. We’re going to be talking about it for a long time to come!

Thank you to all our parent helpers – we couldn’t have done it without you.
