Year 2 The Great Wall group learnt about nature. Children had some beautiful nature drawings and matched them with the Chinese explanations.

Year 4 Tian’an men group has started to learn the topic “eating out”. To start off, they learned to recognise Chinese currency.

Year 5 Forbidden City group started new topic-relatives. In addition to the relationships and their different names in Chinese, the children also had an interesting discussion and learnt the cultural reasons why that Chinese people would call someone who is not a relative '阿姨' (ayi) or '叔叔' (shū shū - uncle).

Y6 Tian’an men group enjoyed a drama week in Chinese. After learnt to give advices by using sentence pattern: 你最好.....(nǐ zuì hǎo - you'd better), children made their mini play and performed it to the class.
