Few week ago, 7th graders went to Nagano for field Study and stayed at North Star. We went on September 30th until October 4th. It took 6 hours to get there. But still it was really FUN! If someone tell me ” what was the most fun thing in Field Study”, I would say riding on the bus because you get to talk to people ( friends) playing Truth or Dare XD and playing cards. Also you get to know them better even though your in the same class! That’s the one thing I LOVE about Field Study 🙂
This year in field study we were pared up with groups and we needed to work together. There were 4 different groups. I was in group 1 but our group name was meatballs. We did lots of bonding activities like mountain biking, soba making and others. But this helped us working as a community, listening to others and sharing Ideas to your team mates. I think, this years point of field study was working as a community more or working with people that you don’t really talk too ( new people). Also I think challenges, solving problems and communicating each other. This relates to what we did in field study for example hiking. Last year when we hiked we went all together lining up. So we just needed to follow the teacher or people that is in front of you but this year we were pared up in a small groups with no teachers, and in one group there are about 6 or 5 people. This relates because in this small groups we need to communicate each other like “lets go that way” and we need to think of each other and solving problems together. If one person is slow at walking then your group needs to wait for you or one person is fast at walking you need to catch up or say ” slow down.”
I had a great time in North star and I made good memorise with most of the 7th graders. I had fun working with my groups and I think 7th grade got a little closer together like we are a big family. I got to know more about my friends and I think we did really good at working as a community.
