18th October 2017: Getting to know you

Getting to know you

Can you guess who’s who?

With so many new students and teachers, how will we ever keep up? With a mystery hunt of course. Today we got to find out about all the English teachers and ask questions about who we are and what we like to do. We finished off with nursery rhyme sing-alongs on the tri-lingual stage.

 

22nd November 2017: Tongue Terror

Tongue Twisters

Mrs Thakkar teaching tricks

Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers, but could he sing? This English day saw students study some super silly signs and sing songs for stickers. Students were also introduced to the first few songs for the TCN’s got Talent competition. Campus TV secured exclusive footage of our NETs performing for a tough panel of judges. Luckily they made it through to the next round.

 13th December 2017: Tis the season

Christmas Singalong

Carry on Caroling

Ho Ho Ho! (好, 好, 好) , Merry Christmas! To get into the Christmas spirit, teachers and English Ambassadors donned Santa hats and reindeer antlers to guide students through traditional Christmas Carols. Much mighty musical merry-making resulted in high spirits, which carried through with the next episode of TCN’s got Talent, where new challengers appeared and sweetly serenaded the school.

24th January 2018: Success in every dogrection

To get students excited for Chinese New Year, teachers encouraged students to make decorative Fai Chun with English phrases. Student participation was incredibly enthusiastic, and their fantastic efforts are displayed around the school.

The English Ambassadors also ran a tuck shop. Two competing teams (Diamond Snacks and Crystal Biscuits) set up stalls by the tri-lingual stage. Students who had succeeded in the puzzle competition were able to use their tickets at the shop and get a free snack. Which team’s products were more popular?

 

21st March: Easter Egg Extravaganza

Easter is one of the most important times in the year. At Easter we remember how Jesus died for our sins and then came back to life. When Jesus’ followers went to where he was buried, they found the tomb empty, and the big stone was rolled away.”

The eggs we decorate, and the chocolate eggs we eat are all empty inside, like the tomb. When we crack open the eggs, it is like the followers finding the tomb empty.

Students took part in an Easter Egg hunt looking all over the playground for them. At the Eggs they had challenges, like singing, hopping like a bunny, or writing some Easter Wishes. There was even a photo booth for them to take pictures in. Can you guess who is who?
