Miss Barr took children from Woodside and Summers Heath to a residential Mandarin course at Frensham during the holiday. This is her report: "The children had a fantastic time and packed in so much learning about Mandarin and Chinese culture. They were all exceptionally well behaved and I am very proud of them all. They were even lucky enough to get to chat and play with some Chinese children who were staying at the same place learning English.
I will be making a CD of photos for each of the children, and one for each of the schools so that they can be used on the schools' websites/displays etc. It would be great if the children at each school could do an assembly about their week. I am sure they would also be happy to demonstrate some of the language and activities they learnt. I would also like to look at getting them together throughout the year to continue their learning and friendship."
