Year 4’s trip to explore the world at Khao Chamao.


This past week our year 4 students went on a life changing trip to Khao Chamao. In this National Park, they were able to swim in waterfalls, go into deep caves and visit the most beautiful beaches, all the while getting to know themselves a little better too! 

This amazing two-day trip is linked into the Unit ‘Human impact on landforms’. Students have been learning about caves, stalactites, layers and other landforms and about what impact humans have on nature. Getting to see how powerful the balance of  the earth is with their own eyes was a great addition to their knowledge. Their knowledge was also extended by learning about new things, such as the local geography. The kids got to see a special type of spider that only lives in the caves of this National park. This trip definitely put their learning into context. 

Liva: “I know I have only been here for half an hour but  this is already the best

experience of my life!”

As well as learning about our planet and its balance, the students also learned about taking responsibility for their own lives and actions. For some of the children this trip was their first without their parents. While some children missed home slightly, it was inspiring to see how others took care of them. It was also great to see how children who are normally quite shy showed a different side of themselves by stepping out of their comfort zone a little more! 

This year's group turned out to be extremely good in all kinds of team building activities and loved to spend time together. They were also very proactive. For example, when they got to the beach, their original plan was to build big sand castles, however when they arrived at the beach there was a lot of rubbish. They spontaneously decided to clean the beach first. It made us so proud to see them doing that! 

We’ve noticed that, after this trip, students are so much more grateful towards the earth and its creatures. Their understanding about the responsibility they have as a human being has grown and that makes them better citizens of the world, for sure.
