我爱我的家人 (I love our family) - update from Chinese department

Early Year’s been learning animal-related themes while KS1 had ‘family members’ as their topic and KS2 focussed on story writing and the formation of Chinese characters.

  • Chinese Class

In Early Years, children had some fun Chinese lessons with the help from their animal friends. Reception learned the story From Head to Toe. They learned the Chinese names of their body parts and played games imitating the animal characters in that book. Nursery children have been learning about animals and in this week, they have started to talk about where they live in the nature.

Year 1 and Year 2 focused on ‘family members’. They learnt to sing the song  我爱我的家人 (wǒ ài wǒ de jiā rén) - I love my family members, then practised how to introduce their family members to others. 

Year 3 focused on story making, children in the Tian’an men group were encouraged to rewrite a story about time while the Forbidden City tried to rewrite a story about play at home. Year 4 had fun playing word games, the Summer Palace group played the game “what’s up” to practice the words they have learned. Children in the the Lama Temple group had lots of fun learning the formation of Chinese characters.
