Mandarin Trip




A group of Third Form pupils, who are in their first year of learning Mandarin, had a great opportunity this term to learn about Chinese history and culture during a trip to the British Museum and Chinatown.

At the museum, James Trapp (Institute of Education Chinese school coordinator) who is very knowledgeable in Chinese history, led the viewing of the Chinese gallery and helped the students to discover examples of Chinese art and culture in different dynasties through jade, porcelain and bronze objects.

After a very enlightening tour, the pupils enjoyed tasting a variety of authentic Chinese cuisine in Chinatown as well as an opportunity for them to practice some of their language skills.
