This week’s Mandarin club, KS2 children made potato stamps with a Chinese character on it.
They first needed to write the character “吉” on a half of a baby potato, which means good luck. Then they carved the their writing with a pencil. After that they stamped the potato in red paint and then onto a Chinese postcard.
These children managed to finished their potato stamps very well within a very limited after lunch time.
Well done children!
On Friday, Y6 and Y5 students learned this beautiful Mandarin song specially for Mother’s day.
Our Y2 just learned writing characters about the weather. They can writing ‘today’, ‘rainy’, ‘snowy’ and ‘big wind’ in Chinese.
In this week’s Mandarin lunch club, KS1 children made a beautiful Mother’s Day card and learned to say “妈妈 我爱你! ” ( I love you Mom! )
我爱你妈妈！ wǒ ài nǐ māma! （I love you Mom !）
We are very lucky to have Harris, Izzi and Lily from SOAS today to talk to our Y6 children about what they experienced in China and some nice things about why they learn Mandarin. It was lovely to know about the food, Chinese New Year and had a look at the books they brought. I liked the funny stories those they shared. I do hope that one day, our children have the opportunity to visit China.
I recorded a song from Y2 that I would like to use it for Reception children. Reception children are learning this song. It is great for them to see that Y2 had learned the song and how they did the actions.
