What a busy year it has been in Grade 4!

Did you know that some of our best learning experiences didn’t even happen in the classroom? Beijing is a wonderful city for museums, parks and experts.

If you have been following our blog, you have seen some of these photos and comments before.

As we reach the final month of Grade 4, here’s a quick recap of some of our happiest learning moments!

    My favorite field trips was going to camp because I was nervous to go without parents but then it was very fun. I learn how to help my team mates and to play a lot of game. In the games, it looks like we needed a lot of risk taking to play them.

    Thank you for organizing our cool field trips! I had great fun in those field trips. My favorite field trip was going on a camp, because I got to do cool things I can’t do in city, such as rock climbing, burning a camp fire and kayyaking. Thank you Ms.O’Dwyer!

    My favorite Field Trip was camp because I have never gone away from my parents for 2 or 3 days and I have never eaten such yummy food away from home. This Field Trip help me how to communicate and be a better team member.

    Dear Ms. O’Dwyer,
    I enjoyed kayaking because I had never kayaked before and it was my first time kayaking. I enjoyed the time that me and Na youn asked Mr. E to connect with us and we followed Mr. E, but when I tried to get off from the kayak, Na Youn accidently pushed me and I fell down to the water and I got all wet. It was my best field trip at the age of 9.

    What did you enjoy the most in that camp?

    Dear Ms.Odwyer,
    I would like to go to activity week again because it was kind of like an adventure and it helped my communication skills improve. I really enjoyed the rock climbing because I felt like I was flying. Will we be able to go to activity week again?

    Dear Ms O’Dwyer,

    I liked all the field trips we went on this year. They were all very interesting. But my favorite field trip is camp because I got to go away from my house for more than 2 days and I got to sleep with my friends. My favorite part of camp was when we were making melted banana with chocolate inside and making smores. It was so delicious!

    My favorite field trip was the fire museum because it had a 4D video and when we practiced evacuating it felt so real because of the smoke and the sound.
    This field trip helped me to to learn about natural disasters. It taught me what to do when real fire happens and how get out subway when a problem happens. It was a fun field trip.

    kind regard,

    Dear Ms. O’Dwyer,

    My favorite field trip in Grade 4 was Activity Week. It was the very first camp of my life. I enjoyed sitting around the campfire and singing camp songs. I really liked the marshmallows that I tasted and I won’t ever forget it! I also liked playing games with my teammates. It was my first time to do hiking and rock climbing on the real rockface. I also liked the challenge of making a tent by only using rope, sticks and another things we could get from nature. I want to go back and check if trees that we had planted are alright!

    Kind Regards,

    Dear Ms. O’Dwyer
    Activity Week was my most favorite week. We went camping and cooked marshmallows and sang around camp fire. I also liked going to Wu Lu Ju Chinese school and make paper cuttings, going to the Fire Museum and experiencing an earthquake… we have been to many fantastic places. But my most favorite Field Trip was camp because we went rock climbing, walked to river and played water… it was very fun. We also learned many things. I learn we should trust team mates, work together with team mates, teams need communication and cooperation… we learned many things.
    Field trips are my favorite way to learn.
    Kind Regards

    Dear Ms O’Dwyer

    My favorite field trip was to went to the camp because i did many activities that I can’t do in school or my house. I did rock climbing, kayaking, made tents and treasure hunting. I especially liked treasure hunting because I improved cooperation in that activity.I got Kaopoon to be my roommate and we talked and played a lot. I was happy that I improved cooperation, teamwork, friendship and empathy.
