Dear primary school parents and families,

亲爱的小学家长们,

 

It has been another busy and exciting two weeks at the primary school in Tianjin. November has been core subject competency month and teachers have been working hard to improve outcomes across all subject areas. English teachers have been focused on improving the vocabulary and grammatical outcomes of students. On the morning of Friday the 24th of November, the primary school held another vocabulary competition. Vocabulary retention is an important part of learning any language and this time, 2A and 2E competed against each other in a sizzling contest. The format followed the same elimination structure as before and it was a close contest with both rounds decided by the last duel in each round. In the end, 2A emerged victorious. Congratulations must go to Ms. Jiang and her 2A class for their diligence and their hard work in learning over 120 words prior to the competition. Many thanks also to their English teachers – Ms. Erickson and Mr. Williamson who supported and assisted both classes.

忙碌而快乐的两周结束了。11月是学部学科核心素养展示月,所有教师都致力于挖掘孩子学科知识之外的思维和技能,并以综合实践的形式呈现教育成果。英语项目组致力于提高学生的词汇量和语法效果,从而形成语言习惯和思维。11月24日,周五的清晨,小学举办了又一场知识为导向的英语学科竞赛,2年级的英语词汇大赛。这次跟以前一样采用了相同的淘汰赛机制。这是一场势均力敌的比赛,两轮比赛的胜负都是由最后一次的比拼中才决定的。最后,2A班取得了胜利。祝贺姜老师和她的2A班学生们。他们在比赛前学习了超过120个单词。再次感谢他们的英语老师——Ms. Erickson和Mr. Williamson为此次活动做出的努力。


On the 23rd of November, students celebrated Thanksgiving with the help of older students from the GaoKao department who hosted the event. Thanksgiving occurs on the fourth Thursday of every November in the United States and it is a time when people reflect and give thanks to others. During Thanksgiving, students thanked their parents, teachers, peers, the school and many others for the help they had received. Students wrote Thanksgiving cards in recognition of the help others have given. Traditionally, a turkey is eaten at dinner during Thanksgiving however this was substituted with a fruit platter and a large cake which was likewise enjoyed by our students. This was our first Thanksgiving celebration at our primary school and it is safe to say that it was a great success as many students were filled with gratitude and glee. We often take for granted the many things we have been given so Thanksgiving is a great time to reflect and thank others for what they have done for us.

11月23日,小学生和普高部学生共同庆祝了感恩节。在美国每年11月的第四个星期四是感恩节,人们借以表大对待生活感恩之心。在黑利伯瑞的感恩节活动中,普高部学生来到小学各班级,主持了整场活动,期间分享了感恩节由来,并组织学生分享了感恩故事,孩子们真挚的表达了对父母、老师、同学以及学校的感恩之心。火鸡是传统的感恩节美食,但在此次活动中,被水果拼盘和大蛋糕取代,孩子们快乐的分享了节日美食。这次活动,大孩子通过角色互换(师生),感受到了自己成长过程中来自老师、家长的辛苦。而小朋友们也表达了长大后能服务别人的期待。而老师门真切感受到,辛勤工作的最大回报,就是每个孩子的成长。人们经常把得到的许多东西视为理所当然,本次活动让每个参与其中的人都感受到黑利伯瑞大家庭的温馨,因为它是每个家庭成员互相帮扶的港湾。


On the afternoon of the 24th of November, the Maths department held a special event known as Haileyshop. November has been core subject competency month and Maths teachers have also been focused on improving Mathematical outcomes. Given that learning is not restricted to what is inside a textbook, Ms. Sun, the head of our Maths department designed a real-life commercial environment where students had to apply mathematical concepts learnt in class. Students were asked to bring in items to sell to other students but before this could happen, they had to name their own shops, market their own items, apply for a seller’s licence, work in teams and understand the basics of consumer economics. Activities were arranged according to the age and mathematical ability of the students. For example, older students were given harder tasks such as having to sell for an extra 50 cents. This resulted in more complex calculations. It was an action-packed afternoon and the primary school building seemed more like a market place than a school! Many thanks to Ms. Sun and her team for hosting such a fun yet educational event.

11月24日,小学部举办了“Haileyshop”的数学实践活动。数学组在关注数学知识和技能的同时,也在不断挖掘学科的社会价值。从而设计了与“经济”概念相关的“shopping”实践模式。通过模拟真实的商业概念,比如销售合同、营业执照、公司印章、流水账单等帮助孩子植入真实的数学思考。活动中,语文学科承担了海报设计和销售语言的培训,英语项目组承担了基本买卖生活语言的教学。同时,还承担了市场管理员的角色,负责检查孩子的语言使用情况,以及销售活动的秩序。老师们根据学生的年龄和数学能力安排活动。例如,高年级的学生被给予了更艰巨的任务,使得计算更加复杂。这是一个令人激动的下午,小学的活动氛围看起来更像是一个真实的市场!感谢孙老师和她的团队举办这样一个有趣而又具有教育性的活动。


On the afternoon of the 1st of December, the Chinese department held a Chinese poem recitation and reading show. The occasion demonstrated the excellent reading and recitation skills of our primary aged students as well as their extensive understanding of Chinese culture and history. Many Chinese poems from different eras were read. Moreover, these were read with clarity, precision and flair. Congratulations to all students who participated in this special event and many thanks to the Chinese department for hosting such a rich and meaningful event. In the 21st century, Chinese is becoming more and more important as it is superseding English in many areas of life. Students who are proficient in Chinese will have a strong advantage as they compete against others in the global village for employment and opportunities.

12月1日下午,语文组举行了经典诵读活动。这次活动展示了小学生的优秀阅读和背诵技能,以及他们对中国文化和历史的广泛了解。学生们读过许多不同时代的中国诗歌。祝贺所有参加这次活动的学生,感谢语文组举办如此丰富而有意义的活动。在21世纪,汉语正变得越来越重要,因为它在许多生活领域都取代了英语。精通汉语的学生在与全球其他国家的就业和机会竞争中具有很强的优势。


Lastly, 5 Monash university students have just completed their teaching placements at our primary school. Four of the students were allocated to the English department in the primary school while one of the students did his teaching practicum in the primary school’s maths department. The students assisted their mentor teachers in the classroom in a myriad of ways such as helping with the classroom management of students, marking homework, translation, tutoring students and enforcing neat student handwriting. Together with the support of their mentor, they also wrote lesson plans and practiced their teaching techniques and methods. They have been a valuable resource to staff and students. They have no doubt also learnt a lot through their three weeks here. We wish them every success in their future as they continue to learn and fine tune their teaching practice.

最后5名莫纳什大学的学生刚刚完成了他们在小学的学习教学任务。四名学生被分配到小学的英语部门,另外一名学生在小学的数学课上实习。学生们在课堂上以各种各样的方式帮助他们的导师老师,比如课堂管理、翻译、辅导学生和帮助学生规范字迹。在他们的导师的支持下,他们也写了课程计划,并增进了他们的教学技巧和方法。毫无疑问,他们在这里的三个星期里也学到了很多。我们祝愿他们在未来取得成功,继续学习和完善他们的教学实践,也真诚希望未来能加入黑利伯瑞的教育团队中。


At Haileybury, every child matters, every day.

在黑利伯瑞,每个孩子都很重要。
