Mandarin lessons for parents and pupils

DSC_1095We recently welcomed our new Mandarin teacher into school for a day of ‘taster sessions’.

Pupils in P4, P5 and P6 all received a short introductory lesson, covering some basic spoken and written Mandarin.

This was designed to spark the pupils’ interest ahead of the 2017-18 session, when pupils in P5, P6 and P7 will be receiving weekly Mandarin lessons as part of our modern languages provision at Preston Street.

An extra lesson for parents and carers.

There was also the opportunity for parents and carers to participate in a special introductory session of their own, which was well attended.

We all really enjoyed the fast-paced and exciting lessons, and look forward to receiving regular Mandarin teaching next year.
