Bulgaria Tuesday by Genny and Bela

The second day of teaching went really well for all four groups. On arrival, the children came sprinting into the classroom buzzing with energy and eager to get started. We all felt more prepared and optimistic this morning about the day ahead of us and it was nice to begin the activities with familiar faces and a positive atmosphere. All of us felt we had learnt a lot from yesterday and used our experiences to make to day even more successful.

We started with physical activities outside and spent about an hour throwing around beach balls and frisbees which all age groups really enjoyed. Some children got so carried away that there were some entertaining falls, although luckily no one was hurt!

Next we went inside and began the first lessons, some included the history of Bonfire Night, clothing and naming capital cities and flags of the world. The rest of the day ran just as smoothly and after the children went home, the team ended on an insightful and valuable presentation from Gancho, the coordinator of World Without Borders – the charity CRED is working alongside. By the time we returned to the hotel everyone was exhausted but really pleased with how successful the day was.  The debrief of the day was filled with positive comments and tips that could help the other groups throughout the week.
