History and German Trip to Berlin
Published on 31/10/18
Year 10 and 11 History and German pupils spent a fascinating 4 days in Berlin. We had an excellent guide who took us chronologically through the history of Berlin during the 20th Century from the Rise of the Nazis, through the 2nd World War onto the Cold War and then finally the fall of the Berlin Wall. The monuments and places we visited were all appropriate for each period of history and pupils demonstrated great reverence and resilience throughout the visits. Among the places we visited were The Reichstag both during the day and at night, Brandenburg Gate, The Holocaust Memorial, Checkpoint Charlie, Asisi Panorama and the Soviet War memorial. Pupils were also given the opportunity to practise their German through buying lunches, using public transport, shopping and reading the many information signs and adverts throughout our excursions. As well as some shopping time, we also enjoyed a variety of different cuisines and an evening bowling.
