This week Kakaket (1 Willow), Olivia (1 Sycamore), Yihong (2 Yew), Stanley (2 Elm) and Kevin (2 Pine) joined Mr Chris Short for his weekly Superintendents lunch having been selected at random during last week’s celebration assembly.
Mr Short was joined by Mr Kris Li, the National Head of Primary. Everyone had a good time. There were some lovely conversations about their childhood stories, artificial intelligence and the future world. As a highlight, students taught Mr. Chris how to write Chinese characters and distinguish between “人” (which means human) and “入” (which means enter).
Based on the Chinese Food in textbooks, our Grade 2 Chinese teachers organised students to carry out a thematic inquiry event. Teachers and students from other grades were attracted by the exquisite rice dumplings, Dongpo Pork, dumplings, etc. Some kids recommended their dishes to others in vivid language, some designed creative slogans, some wrote poems indicating the colour, fragrance and taste of the food while some shared with others the story behind the food. As is said, “read the text and make the food”. This is a process of perception, accumulation, internalization and application. It is also a method for students to understand and express with their own sense of creativity. Students are enabled to appreciate the beauty of Chinese language and get enhanced in expression. You are also welcomed to appreciate our students’ works during the parent-teacher meeting.
