Year 1 visit the Bitexco Tower

A school trip provides children with experiences outside of their everyday activities. It allows children to absorb, interact and immerse themselves in a practical way. As a result, this furthers the children’s learning and the teaching of a subject becomes more meaningful. This week, Year 1 visited the Bitexco Tower and they certainly absorbed all of the stunning views from the top of the tower and had an exciting and memorable experience.

“It’s so tall!” was a phrase heard many times whilst entering the Skydeck lobby at the base of the Bitexco Tower. The super-speedy elevator ride reached the 49th floor in sub-1 minute time and they had arrived. Departing the lift, the children took in the amazing views from all directions. They then completed a variety of art-themed activities that reflected what could be seen at each viewing point. One of the views was of the towering skyline, so the children worked in teams to make their own skyline on long pieces of paper using marker pens. The view to the south was particularly colourful, so the children used pastels and crayons to create some multicoloured tiles. At the west point, a ‘mish-mash’ of buildings in a variety of shapes and sizes could be seen so the children used charcoal to great effect. The river was the main feature of the view to the east. The children captured the curved lines of the river and roads beyond.

The children all showed a great interest in what they could see, as well as the tower itself. So many wonderful questions being asked; a great springboard to our new topic 'Buildings and Structures'. Once all of the activities were complete, it was time to get the bus back to school and after a few more photos and a quick descent, they were off. A great morning was enjoyed by everyone!
