公告6,第12周,第1学期,2017 -18



Dear primary school parents and families,

亲爱的小学家长们,


It has been another eventful and action-packed two weeks at the primary school in Tianjin. Following the mid-semester exams, students have since started a new term of learning and it is great to see students engaging in their studies with the same level of rigor and intent as they had when they first started the academic year. This month is core subject competency month and teachers are working hard to improve outcomes across all subject areas. For example, English teachers are now focused on preparing students for the Cambridge Young Learners of English Exams. Students in years two, four and six will be undertaking standardized Cambridge tests next year. These tests are similar to Australia’s NAPLAN as they help to benchmark students according to an internationally recognized English as a second language framework (Common European Framework). English teachers are using in-class activities such as worksheets as well as out of class activities such as vocabulary competitions to improve English outcomes.

这两周又是丰富多彩而繁忙的两周。在期中考试之后,学生们开始了一个新的学习阶段,很高兴看到学生们在他们的学习上保持着同样兴趣和严谨性,就像他们刚开始学习的时候一样。本月为学科素养主题展示月,教师们为了各自学科的改进工作而努力着。例如,英语老师们正在为学生准备剑桥少儿英语考试。这些测试类似于澳大利亚的NAPLAN,他们帮助基准学生根据国际公认的英语作为第二语言框架(共同的欧洲框架)。老师们利用各种课堂活动来提高学生的英语学习水平,例如单词拼写大赛等。


As is now a Haileybury Tianjin custom, the primary school held another English competition at assembly on the morning of the 10th of November. This time, the two year 6 classes (6A and 6B) battled it out against each other to see whose English vocabulary was the best. An elimination structure was set up with one student from each class facing off against the other. The winner of each dual continued on but the loser left the competition. In the first round, students had to translate words from English to Chinese and after 40 electrifying duals, Sakura, our primary school captain was able to eliminate Jack who was the last student from 6A. In the second round, students had to translate words from Chinese into English. This is usually harder for our students and again it was great to see the intense but respectful rivalries between the two classes. In the end, 6B came out on top again and Sakura accepted a certificate on behalf of her class detailing her class’ victory.

黑利伯瑞小学部现在形成了一种习惯,小学部在11月10日上午的英语集会上举行了另一场英文竞赛。这一次,六年级 (6A和6B) 的两个班级学生互相竞争,看谁的英语词汇掌握是最好的。每个班的一名学生与另一个班级的学生抢答,使用淘汰制。每场比赛的胜者留在赛场,而失败者离开比赛舞台。在第一轮中,学生们需要将英语单词翻译成汉语,在40组词之后,我们的小学队长Sakura战胜了6A班的最后一名队员Jack。在第二轮中,学生们需要将汉语中的词语翻译成英语。这对我们的学生来说通常是比较困难的,但是我们很高兴看到了两个班级之间激烈而又相互尊重的竞争。最后,6B班获得胜利,队长Sakura代表她的班级上台领奖。


A parent-teacher meeting and a music concert were also held in the afternoon of the 10th of November. Similar to how parent-teacher meetings are conducted in Australia, parents were invited to speak to their homeroom teachers as well as their core subject teachers concerning the progress of their children. With the mid-semester exams and half of the semester completed, teachers were able to holistically convey to parents the progress of their children. After a stimulating three and a half hours, it was great to see smiles illuminating from staff and parents. The smiles reflected parental satisfaction with the progress of their children as well as their trust and support of the school. Students had the luxury of listening to a music concert while the meetings were occurring and performing students demonstrated musical competence across a range of instruments. Piano, drums, African drums, the accordion and the Chinese GuZheng were just some of the many instruments being professionally played by our talented students on the day. On the 17th of November, a life skills competition for primary students was also held by dormitory staff. Students not only had to know the theory behind various life skills such as folding beds, brushing teeth, dressing up and personal hygiene but they also had to put these theories into practice. Congratulations to those students who exhibited excellent cleanliness, tidiness, organisation and hygiene on the day.

11月10日下午也举行了家长会和音乐会。与在澳大利亚的家长会类似,家长们被邀请与他们的班主任老师以及他们的课任老师讨论他们的孩子的进步。老师们能够全面地向家长传达他们孩子的进步在这半个学期和本次的期中考试中。在经历了三个半小时交谈之后,我们很高兴的看到了家长和老师们脸上的笑容。微笑反映了父母对孩子进步的满意,以及他们对学校的信任和支持。学生们有幸在会议期间听一场音乐会。学生们用一系列的器乐表演展示他们的能力和才华,钢琴、鼓、非洲鼓、手风琴和中国古筝只是我们这些才华横溢的学生所演奏的许多乐器中的一部分。在11月17日小学部将举行一场生活技能比拼,学生们不仅要知道叠被子,刷牙,穿衣服以及个人卫生的理论知识,还需要把他们运用到实践中。祝贺那些在当天展示出卓越生活技能的学生们。


As mentioned in the last entry, five Monash university students have arrived at our primary school. They will be here for a total of three weeks and will undertake various tasks and responsibilities such as helping out with our sports program as well as complimenting their mentor teachers. In the first week, they have been taking notes and observing their mentor teachers and in the second and third weeks, they will help students through the guidance of their mentor teachers. Again, we wish them every success in what will no doubt be both an eye-opening but also a meaningful experience for them.

正如上一篇文章提到的,莫纳什大学的学生已经到了我们学校。他们将在这里待上三周,并承担各种任务和职责,如帮助我们的体育项目,以及完成他们所在班级的课程计划。在第一周,他们一直在做笔记,向他们的导师老师学习。在第二周和第三周他们将在导师的指导下帮助学生学习英语。这对他们来说是一次令人大开眼界但也有意义的经历,再次希望他们的实习取得圆满成功。


Lastly, the primary school together with the middle school visited two Tianjin museums on the 16th of November. We visited the science museum first and saw many amazing exhibitions such as dinosaurs, kangaroos, penguins, lions and birds. For many children, this was the first time at the Tianjin science museum and it was no doubt an eye-opening experience for them. At around noon, students ate their packed lunched before walking to the historical and cultural museum not far away. There, the students witnessed the rich history of Tianjin and saw many historical photographs of old Tianjin. Students saw the unique heritage of Tianjin and learnt much about China’s past. Overall it was a wonderful excursion with students learning more about the world around them as well as Tianjin’s colourful history. The good behaviour and good manners of the primary school students has become the brand of the primary school.

最后,11月16日小学和中学一起参观了天津的博物馆。我们首先参观了自然博物馆,参观了许多令人惊叹的展览,如恐龙、袋鼠、企鹅、狮子和鸟类。对许多孩子来说,这是第一次来到天津自然博物馆,毫无疑问,这是一次令人大开眼界的经历。中午时分,学生们吃了午饭,然后走到不远的历史文化博物馆。在那里,学生们目睹了天津丰富的历史,看到了许多古老的天津的历史照片。学生们看到了天津独特的传统,并对中国的过去有了更多的了解。总的来说,这是一次奇妙的旅行,让学生们了解更多关于他们周围的世界,以及天津丰富多彩的历史。良好的文明礼貌行为已经逐渐成为了小学部的一种标志,得到了场馆工作人员以及其他参展人员的赞扬。


At Haileybury, every child matters, every day.

在黑利伯瑞,每个孩子都很重要。
