Pupil impressions of the Berlin Trip
We thoroughly enjoyed the Berlin Trip. There were so many fun activities and the outings that we enjoyed were going to the sweet making shop, the zoo and buying goodies in the Ampelmann shop. In the sweet making shop we were able to watch a man making sweets and he allowed us to taste the sweets as he was making them. The shop was fantastic, we’ve never seen or tasted as many delicious sweets before! We had great fun at the zoo. It was snowing and this was a unique experience as normally we try to go to the zoo on a beautiful day at home! The zoo was actually in the city, we were able to walk to it from our hotel and we had such a good view of the animals as their enclosures were quite close to the visitors. We particularly enjoyed feeding time at the lions’ enclosure and also hearing the lions growl!

Having our lunch in the rotating restaurant in the TV Tower was a totally unique experience as we got an elevator up to the restaurant and as we were having our snack the restaurant rotated. This enabled us to have a fantastic view of
