The children have been learning about Inner Mongolia as part of their 'People And Places' topic and it was amazing to put their learning into action as we looked at environmental issues such as Desertification; Topography and the life of Genghis Khan.
The Eagles also faced some physical challenges such as camel riding, sand sliding and hiking as well as the traditional Mongolian pursuits of dancing, archery and wrestling!
Of course we made time for fun too with bowling, games and quizzes!
All who attended (including the teachers) agreed that it was a jam-packed week that was as exhilarating as it was exhausting!
Year 6 showed what an asset to the school they were with their positive attitudes, superb behaviour and their determination to try things that they haven’t done before. This opportunity gave them the chance to apply all of the Be Ambitious skills that we prize so highly in school and I couldn’t be prouder of them.
