In Early Years and Key stage one children have the opportunity to work each week with our Mandarin teacher Miss Yu. Children learn basic Mandarin through exciting activities and lessons. Miss Yu shares with the children how children from her own school in China learn through her photographs and discussions. Children learn all about China and have the opportunity to experience first hand Chinese Traditions and different aspects of Chinese Culture.
As part of the experiential learning, teachers plan Chinese banquets and cooking lessons, Chinese New Year parties with music, costume and a real Chinese Dragon Dance workshop. Chinese artefacts and stories are shared and parents are welcomed into school to share the experience with their child.
Children celebrate their experience and achievements on our bright and stimulating displays.
