Our Reception children talked about food this week. They had lots of fun making toy food by hand. We played games that encouraged making healthy food choices.  They spoke Chinese and grabbed play food, identifying whether it was healthy or unhealthy.

The Y1 Tiananmen group and Forbidden City group learned the about daily activities, such as brush my teeth, put on my shoes, etc.  We had fun learning new words and phrases through various games and activities.

The Y2 Great Wall  and Tiananmen groups started to learn about directions, such as forward, backward, left, right, etc.  We played games that challenged the students to apply what they had learned. 

The Y3 Tiananmen groups learned the story “It’s Raining.”  Students enjoyed learning the text by performing this story.  We also drew Chinese characters in the air by using Tai Qi motions along with music.

The Y5/6 Great Wall group used their Fluent Thinking skills, coming up with lots of great ideas to help them write their own story.  We used a collection of vocabulary, story maps, and visual aids to allow the students to write creatively.  The students reviewed the vocabulary by playing a collaborative memory game.
