10 Days of Chinese New Year: Day 9

12 February 2015

On the 9th day of Chinese New Year, students learned about some traditional Chinese games in their PE classes.

The ninth day of our Chinese New Year celebrations, our Year 8 class had a ‘Chinese’ PE lesson. We were divided into our four houses for the lesson. Every Chinese person knows about shuttlecock and skipping, most Chinese students have played it in primary school. In this PE lesson we also learned to play a traditional Chinese game, kick-ups with a kind of shuttlecock, and skipping. Some students were very good at this, even though they did miss some. In China there are many sports and activities like these which are worth a try, like playing sandbags for example.

中国新年庆祝的第九天,我们八年级上了一堂“中国体育课”。我们分为四队,红队、黄队、绿队和蓝队(house)。中国一样人人都知道的运动就是踢毽子和跳绳,大多数中国学生都在小学的时候玩过。这次的体育课我们也学了踢键子以及跳绳。部分学生很擅长这些,一踢一跳就是好几个,也有些差了一些点,经常失败。在中国还有许多这样的运动/活动值得一试,像打沙包等等。
