Chinese class with Wendy!
Every Tuesday, Wendy (from China) comes to school to teach us Mandarin/Chinese, and the traditions of the Chinese. The first week Wendy came, she taught us how to use chopsticks, and then we played a game where er picked up small objects and put them in a bowl. Last week, We learned all about the Dragon Boat Festival, and Wendy played a song about it. Then we made rice dumplings, and I helped write Chinese names for everyone. Then, this Tuesday, Wendy made better names for everyone, and we practised writing them. I already have a Chinese name, so I just used that. After practising, we used colouring pens or Vivids to write them onto pieces of rice paper. It was a great time!
