Making progress in Chinese

Making caterpillars, working out puzzles, reading about 'The Robot' - children in all Chinese groups have had a great learning experience in their Chinese classrooms this week. 

  • Reception - paper caterpillar
 
In Reception, we have been learning all about food by sharing the story of ‘The very hungry caterpillar’. We even made our own caterpillar and fed it with lots of fruit and snacks. The children were very excited about this task and have done some brilliant jobs! Some of them are now able to retell the story in Chinese using the caterpillar they made.
 
In Year 4 Lama Temple group, we held a word puzzle session to practise our newly learned Chinese characters. The children enjoyed the game very much and did a good job working out all the puzzles. Here’s a few for you to try: 
 
上下难分 (shàng xià nán fēn)
八十八 (bā shí bā)
七人头上长了草 (qī rén tóu shàng zhǎng le cǎo)
 
Do you know the answer to theses puzzles? Ask someone from Year 4 Lama Temple to help you out there!
 
In Year 5 Forbidden City group, we learned about neighbourhood and the story ‘The Robot’. It seems that everyone would want a robot from the story to help clean their rooms or work on their homework.
