Chinese Culture Week

At the end of Autumn 1, we were lucky enough to have visitors from Chongquing, China and we had 2 students with us several times throughout the week. On Thursday, we celebrated Chinese Culture Day! We were treated to lots of performances form the Chinese students and in our classroom, we did different activities. With Mrs Godwin, we did some Chinese art and learnt some language. With Miss Harding, we firstly located China on a map and then had to draw on the physical features of China including rivers and mountains. After, we learnt some music on the glockenspiels that used a pentatonic scale (the scale that most Chinese music follows). It means it works in a scale of 5 like a pentagon. Once we had learned the piece of music, we had the chance to come up with our own using the 5 notes.
