Vietnamese Coast Guard Visitor – Year 3 Vietnamese Literacy
On Tuesday, February 14th 2017, it was wonderful to see how excited Year 3 children were when welcoming a special visitor from the Vietnamese Coast Guards. The children had a chance to learn more about the job of a Vietnamese Coast Guard, and more importantly, about their daily life on the sea. This is linked with Vietnamese Literacy topic “Letters and Authors” that Year 3 children are learning about.
The children raised lots of questions for the special visitor and he was happily willing to answer all of them. Through these questions, Year 3 children have learnt that while we were enjoying a warm and lovely time with our family during the Tet Holiday, or any other vacation, almost all of the Vietnam Coast Guard must stay along the coasts to protect the sovereignty, jurisdiction, protection of natural resources, prevention of environmental pollution; detect, prevent and combating acts of smuggling, piracy…they couldn’t spend time with their families.
After the talk, our Year 3 children decided to write letters for Vietnamese Coast Guards in Vung Tau, Viet Nam, to show their love and admiration to them. Some of them even want to be a Vietnamese Coast Guard in the future as they would like to put a contribution to the save our Vietnam Coast.
They also made some cards to show their love to the Vietnamese Coast Guard Team as special Valentine gilt.
We had an exciting lesson and we do hope to have more of these kinds of lessons in the future.
