On the 14th-15th of September, me and my classmates got an inimitable opportunity to go on a largely successful and entertaining CAS trip to Uglich. The following trip was a fun experience that equipped students with tools for further educational formation; developed their collaborative skills and enhanced their knowledge of Russian culture. During the trip we have visited many museums and master classes, as well as have participated in interactive programs, thus enabling ourselves to uncover the beauty of Uglich. The integral part of the trip, however, was also the CAS presentation demonstrated to the Year 12s by Year 13s on Saturday evening. The aforementioned presentation not only enriched the knowledge of Year 12s regarding the nature of CAS, but also allowed Year 13s to share their experiences and strengthen their communication skills. In addition, the presentation ensued in the generation of many ideas for future CAS activities (a timeline of potential CAS events was created), namely for the upcoming International Day, thus augmenting students’ creativity levels. The following CAS activity also strongly developed students’ collaboration abilities, as we have all worked in groups while creating a timeline of CAS events and while showcasing the presentation itself. I am extremely grateful to have gone on this trip that perfectly combined enjoyment with education.

Gingerbread making in Uglich

We were given two gingerbreads each, resembling the shape of a cat and a mouse. These were to be decorated with playdough-like chocolate of different colors. We were given examples of different cats, mice or even other animals that were designed by many different visitors and professionals.

We could either choose one of the example designs or come up with a completely new one based on our original ideas. Nonetheless, it tested our creativity. Out came many unique designs we could appreciate.

Another good thing to take out of this experience is the result, which we could share or give to others.

One of the more difficult things about the activity was working with the equipment. We were only given a toothpick. This created limitations to the possible designs and overall made the process more tedious and frustrating.

However, it was really fun as there were still tons of options for different ways to create due to the several colours we were provided. Although the palette was very limited, different coloured chocolates could be mixed together to create virtually any colour.
