Berlin trip for MYP 4

Over the half term break, our MYP4 students visited Berlin for a week packed full of history and culture. The students travelled by train to encourage them to reflect upon the environmental impact of flying. This also gave everyone plenty of time to rest up and prepare for the busy week ahead! 

Once in Berlin, the students experienced a variety of cultural tours and museum visits. They particularly enjoyed visiting the DDR Museum and learning about life in East Berlin during the time of the Cold War. The students also took part in some community challenges in order to help them prepare for the Service as Action element of their MYP studies. These ranged from interviewing members of the public to getting their hands dirty making compost in an eco-garden!
A real highlight of the week for all was visiting some of Berlin's best street art with a local artist who then shared some of his top tips in a graffiti workshop. Each of our students created an art piece to take away with them. In addition, they really enjoyed visiting Unsich Bar, a somewhat unusual restaurant where they were served a delicious three-course surprise menu in complete darkness!
