In Early Years, children talked about the coming Christmas. They practised how to say Christmas - 圣(shèng)诞(dàn)节(jié) and present - 礼(lǐ)物(wù) in Chinese, then learned some other words related to Christmas, too. They also enjoyed the Christmas songs and stories very much.
Children in Y2 Forbidden City learned a story about making new friends. Children tried their best to retell the story. Children in Y4 Lama Temple and Summer Palace learned to write a letter in Chinese. All of the children worked hard to write a letter to their pen pals to ask them what Christmas present they would likemto have.
Children in Y5 Summer Palace and Forbidden City had a Chinese culture lesson. They learnt an ancient Chinese poem about snow and practised calligraphy with Chinese writing brush.
Although it was not easy for them to control the brush, they all showed great interest in doing the calligraphy and felt very proud of their work.
