Berlin Trip

After the close of the Autumn Term, 14 Lower and Upper Fifth pupils visited Berlin, to learn about the history of city and embrace the German culture and language.

Between 12 and 14 December, the German and history students ticked a number of sites off their lists, including the Berlin Wall, the Holocaust museum, Checkpoint Charlie, the Brandenberg Gate and Berlin Cathedral. The group also visited the Reichstag and took a trip to the top of the TV tower at sunset.

Evenings were spent exploring the city’s famed Christmas markets – with language pupils using their German to order food and buy souvenirs and gifts.

Teacher of German at St John’s, Tanya Waheed, commented: ‘It was a very enjoyable and festive trip, and great to combine the interests of both German and history pupils.’
