12 May 2014

Last week saw the Year 3 children set off for their residential to Jinshanling – a beautiful part of the Great Wall. Three hours out of the city, the excited children set off last Wednesday morning after saying goodbye to their parents and loved ones. Bubbling with excitement the children endured the three hour coach journey by singing songs, playing I Spy and writing the opening entries in their journals. The prospect of camping with friends, metres away from the Great Wall resulted in very happy, eager children.

Upon arriving at the campsite, the children set straight off putting up their tents. Even out of school the children showed excellent collaborative skills, working together to put up their homes for the evening. Once the tents were up, vaguely resembling an Egyptian desert of yellow pyramids, we had lunch before hiking up the Great Wall.

Walking, and sometimes crawling, up the steps of the Wall, the children made it to a high tower where they sketched the idyllic scenery, complete with blue skies!

The evening saw the children enjoy a BBQ dinner followed by hot chocolate and marshmallows. Clearly excited at the prospect of sleeping under the stars, the children eventually settled down to bed, a mere three hours after entering their tents!

Thursday morning began with breakfast before moving onto our next location – a guesthouse. There the children were shown their rooms before visiting a traditional Chinese village.

A fun packed day, the children participated in several activities including dumpling making, paper cutting, mask painting and visiting a farm. That evening both the children and the adults enjoyed scrumptious Chinese food, again followed by hot chocolate and marshmallows.

Before we knew it, Friday had crept up on us and it was time to leave. After having breakfast and tidying up their rooms, Year 3 set off back to Beijing. As the clear blue skies turned dull grey approaching the city, the still excited children passed the time by watching their favourite film Frozen (Let it go… Let it go…).

As ever the children behaved extremely well and were a credit to the school.

Only 365 days until the next one…
