In a blink of an eye, the Mid-Autumn Festival is fast approaching. The bilingual department of the WXFLS has organized plentiful activities in order to deepen students’ understanding of this traditional festival and to celebrate this wonderful moment.
The students shared stories about Change and Wugang with their librarian. Their hearts and minds all flew to the moon after hearing these ancient fairy tales. What’s more, students discussed local customs in Wuxi as well as the ways of celebration in other countries. The children learnt more about local and international contexts. Therefore, they broadened their international perspective.
In the classroom, the students were absorbed in making crafts. As you can see, some of them are trying independently, while some are working as a team. All kinds of lanterns, cutouts and greeting cards were made to carry the best wishes and longing for families.
“When is the moon full and bright? Raising wineglass, I ask blue sky. I don’t know what year it is tonight, In the heaven palace so far away.”That is the students’ singing in their young voices. They can appreciate the beauty of the traditional culture through poem and music.
What an amazing celebration! All the students and teachers enjoyed the joyful activities. It’s a good occasion for students to express their appreciation about Chinese culture.
