Primary Moments – WW2 Field Trip in Qingdao
We have been studying how children were affected by World War Two in topic class, and the book Diary of Anne Frank. On April 18, we went on a field trip to see the impact of World War Two right here in Qingdao.
We began at the Qingdao Naval Museum, which has a collection of aircraft, tanks and ships. After learning so much through books and videos, the class was excited to see these machines up close.
After this we explored Little Qingdao Island, which is a beautiful place to have a snack nowadays. It also has tunnels left over from the wars. The students had a great time exploring this peaceful island for signs from the past.
The highlight of the trip for the students was the slightly scary German Prison. While this is a fascinating place to visit, it also taught the students to have respect for historical sites with a dark past. It also helped them to respect and recognise the sacrifices people made in World War Two, so that we can now live in peace.
