In partnership with Institute of Education of Reading University, we welcomed a group of Chinese Teachers of English to our school during the last week of Term 3 (w/c 6th February) for their school placement.
The purpose of their visit is to learn about the British Education System. In return they also planned some activities for the children as part of the Chinese New Year of Rooster celebrations.
All the children had the opportunity to learn more about the Chinese culture such as making and tasting Chinese dumplings and putting chopsticks into practice, singing Chinese songs, learning traditional folk dance, Yong-ge Wu and doing paper cutting. As part of our topic work on the Shang Dynasty of Ancient China, Year 3, 4 and 5 enjoyed a session from the Chinese Teachers and learned more about this period of China. It was a fun-packed learning week - all the children thoroughly enjoyed their learning about China and they have increased their knowledge and skills in all aspects.
