Grade 2 & 4 students have been learning about the story of the Chinese Zodiac. They have also learnt the names of the animals in the story. They had fun playing the Zodiac bingo game where they took turns to spin the paper wheel, say the words and find them on the bingo sheet. This is an excellent game where they learnt to work cooperatively and at the same time, they practised speaking and reading Chinese.
Welcome back to 2020, Year of the Rat. It is believed that people born in the Year of the Rat are clever, playful, timid and love puzzles and games.
Students in Grades 2, 4, 5 & 6 are learning Chinese for 50 minutes per week during Semester 1 and Preps, Grades 1 and 3 will have their turn during Semester 2.
As our school has an extra grade this year, sadly we no longer have a Language room and Chinese will be taught in students home rooms. My office is in the Grade 3 pods.
