KS3 German Trip – Days 3, 4 & 5

June 16, 2016

Day 3 (Tuesday): we made a trip to the Dachau Concentration Camp which was very interesting for the children. They looked carefully, listened to the facts, and watched a documentary. Throughout the trip they had interesting discussions among themselves on various historical themes and some of them bought candles and lit them in the memory of the victims of the Nazi regime. As teachers, we were really impressed to see the children approaching this event in history in such a mature way, with sensitivity and thoughtfulness.

We also had a set of interactive lessons in which the children had to use the grammar knowledge they acquired. After one of the lessons, for example, the children went to the Flohmarkt (Flee market), and indoor market, together with the teacher.

Day 4 (Wednesday): we decided to have a more relaxed day after so many trips and experiences, so we went shopping: the children had been saving their money in order to have more money for shopping. We hope they have made the best choices and are happy with what they have bought.

Day 5 (Thursday): Today we will be visiting the Deutsches Museum of Science and Technology.
