Dear primary school parents and families,

亲爱的小学家长们:


It has been another delightful and exciting two weeks at the primary school in Tianjin. On Friday the 30th of March, our primary school students celebrated Easter. Easter is an important Christian festival which commemorates the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. It has been celebrated by Westerners for many centuries. Nowadays, children in the West celebrate Easter by giving chocolate Easter eggs and participating in Easter egg hunts. For many students, this was their first Easter celebration and they were excited to participate in the two Easter activities on the day. The first activity was designing an Easter poster. Students used English to create their posters and it was obvious that many of our students are gifted artists. Moreover, it was great to see students working together in their classes and sharing ideas to design their posters. The second activity was the Easter ‘candy’ hunt. On the day, the courtyard at the back of the primary school was divided into 5 areas which were each guarded by our 5 international teachers. Students had to guess the correct secret passwords to be allowed inside the 5 guarded areas. The passwords included ‘Rumpelstiltskin’, ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ and ‘Fruit Loops’. It was great to see the many smiles on the faces of our children amidst the chaos and mayhem of the lolly hunt. Special thanks must go out to Mr. Xu who organized the event and to the red and blue bunnies for making the event a memorable experience for everyone.


天津黑利伯瑞国际学校小学部的同学们度过了又一个愉快并激动人心的两周。三月三十日星期五,我们的小学生庆祝了复活节。复活节是一个重要的基督教节日,用来纪念耶稣基督的死亡和复活。它已经被西方人庆祝了好几个世纪。如今,西方的孩子们通过赠送巧克力复活节彩蛋和参加复活节彩蛋活动来庆祝复活节。对许多学生来说,这是他们第一次复活节的庆祝活动,他们很兴奋地参加了当天的两个复活节活动。第一个活动是设计复活节海报。学生们用英语创作他们的海报,很明显,我们的许多学生都是天才艺术家。此外,很高兴看到学生们在课堂上一起合作,分享创意,设计他们的海报。第二项活动是寻找复活节“糖果”。当天,小学后面的院子被分成5个区域,每个区都由我们的5名国际教师把守。学生们必须猜出在5个守卫区内允许的正确密码。这些密码包括“Rumpelstiltskin”、“忍者神龟”和“水果圈”。看到我们孩子们在寻找彩蛋过程中脸上的笑容,真是太棒了。特别感谢徐主任,他组织了这次活动,并向红蓝小兔子的扮演者们致敬,让这次活动成为大家难忘的经历。

Students went home on Wednesday the fourth of April because of the Qing Ming national holiday. Qing Ming is a traditional Chinese festival which has been celebrated for many centuries in China. Our students took this opportunity to spend extra time with their friends and family and many also celebrated by eating Qingtuan which is a snack usually made from rice flour and red bean paste. Apart from completing their holiday homework set by their core subject teachers, students were also assigned some moral education homework. Students were asked to construct a four-generation family tree so that they could understand more about their family and their family’s history. As filial piety has always been an important part of Chinese culture, students were also asked to interview their grandparents about their experiences growing up. I am sure many students gained a lot of wisdom and insight from talking with their elders. We hope everyone enjoyed their mini-break and spent time together with friends and family.


4月4日星期三清明节放假,学生们回到家中。清明节是中国的一个传统节日,在中国已经有好几个世纪的历史了。我们的学生利用这个机会与他们的朋友和家人度过额外的时间,许多人也通过吃青团来庆祝,这是一种通常由米粉和红豆糊做成的小吃。除了完成他们的核心科目老师布置的假期作业外,学生还被分配了一些德育作业。学生们被要求完成一个四代的族谱,这样他们就能更好地了解他们的家庭和他们家族的历史。由于孝道一直是中国文化的重要组成部分,学生们也被要求采访他们的祖父母,了解他们的成长经历。我相信许多学生从与长辈交谈中获得了许多智慧和见解。我们希望每个人都享受他们的假期,和朋友和家人在一起。

Reading is an integral part of language development and students are encouraged to read English and Chinese books. A new reading area in the ‘Chill Out‘ lounge inside the primary school has recently been established. With comfortable seats and shelves of books to choose from, our children are welcome to borrow and to wind down with a book in the new area during their break times. Many hundreds of new Chinese books have also been placed inside our primary classrooms this semester and students are encouraged to borrow and read these books at their own leisure. During the recent Qing Ming holiday, students were also asked to read with or to their guardians and to complete a reading log of the books they read during the break. We want to encourage all of our students to develop a good reading habit. The English buddy reading program also continues to be successful. The program continues to operate on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons and we would like to thank the many middle school students who volunteer their time to help our students with their English reading. I am glad to announce that many of our primary school students have even given public reading presentations at middle school assemblies! International teachers have continued to manage the borrowing and lending of the English graded readers since the first week of this semester, Your child should be bringing home each week a new English reading book. Please look at the table below to see which English teacher is managing the graded reading of your child. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your homeroom teacher or Mr. Fang. Walt Disney, the creator of Mickey Mouse once said ‘There is more treasure in books than in all the pirates’ loot on treasure island.’ At Haileybury, we encourage all of our students to develop a good reading habit.


阅读是语言发展的重要组成部分,鼓励学生阅读英文和中文书籍。最近,小学部的“放松”休息室里新建了一个阅读区。有了舒适的座位和可供选择的书架,我们欢迎孩子们在课间休息的时候到这里借书。这学期,我们的小学教室里也放了几百本新的中文书,鼓励学生们在自己的闲暇时间借阅这些书。在最近的清明节期间,学生们也被要求与他们的监护人一起阅读。我们想鼓励所有的学生养成良好的阅读习惯。英语伙伴阅读计划也继续取得成功。这个项目继续在星期二、星期三和星期四下午进行,我们要感谢参与的中学生,他们自愿抽出时间来帮助我们的学生阅读英语。我很高兴地宣布,我们的许多小学生甚至已经在中学的集会上公开阅读了!国际教师从本学期的第一周开始就继续管理英语分级读物的借阅,你的孩子每周都可能要带回家一本新的英语阅读书。请看下面的表格,看看哪个英语老师在管理你孩子的分级阅读。如果您有任何问题,请与您的班主任老师或方先生联系。米老鼠的创造者沃尔特·迪斯尼曾经说过:“书里的宝藏比在金银岛上所有海盗的战利品都要多。”在黑利伯瑞,我们鼓励所有的学生养成良好的阅读习惯。

The long-anticipated CCTV Star of Outlook competition was held at our school on the 12th of April. Entrants from primary, middle and senior school participated in this national English competition. The first round involved students giving a 60 second self-introduction in English and answering some questions from judges based on their introduction. A total of 34 students from the primary school (years 1-6) participated in the morning’s competition. As expected, our students shined brightly on the day and I am sure many of our students will pass the first round. Congratulations to all the students who took the time to memorize their self-introductions and were able to fluently answer the assessors’ questions. Many thanks must also go to their English teachers who used their own free time to edit speeches and train students. We are encouraged by the pleasing performances from this round and we expect that many of our students will also obtain good results in the second. In the second round (April the 26th), students will need to answer the phrase: 。。。。。 makes me 。。。。。. Moreover, students will also need to perform a talent show for about 3 minutes. Props can be used but these should not be over 2 meters in length. Through the hard work of our students and the support and encouragement of our teachers, we trust that our students will continue to shine brightly in the next round.


4月12日,期待已久的“cctv希望之星”比赛在我校举行。来自小学、初中和高中的参赛者参加了这次全国英语竞赛。第一轮的学生用英语进行了60秒的自我介绍,并在介绍的基础上回答了一些评委的提问。一共有来自一至六年级的34名小学生参加了比赛。正如我们所料,我们的学生在这一天闪亮耀眼,很多学生们成功地通过了第一轮。祝贺所有花时间记住自我介绍,并能流利地回答评委的问题的学生。当然也要感谢他们的英语老师,他们利用自己的空闲时间来训练他们的学生。我们对这轮比赛的令人满意的结果感到备受鼓舞,我们希望我们的许多学生在第二轮比赛中也能取得好成绩。在第二轮(4月26日),学生们需要回答这个短语:“……使我……”此外,学生还需要准备一个大约三分钟的才艺表演。道具可以使用,但长度不能超过2米。通过我们学生的努力和老师的支持和鼓励,我们相信我们的学生将会在下一轮中继续发光发亮。
