The primary school is for students in grades 1-6. There is both a residential and daily option, with some students going home each day and others staying in dormitories from Monday-Friday. There are over 2000 students at the primary school, and it is a colorful, active environment. We observed an English class and participated in a community class, which was a creative art class. Students were making peony flowers out of paper plates, and others were practicing calligraphy. Leah was seated by a very helpful student, who was able to communicate all of the directions very clearly. I tried to create a calligraphy piece that symbolizes happiness, and although I was happy to do it, I need a lot more practice. In addition to creating art, students put on amazing performances for us, with traditional clothing, singing, dancing, and music. The smaller classroom pictures are from a fifth grade class called, Good English. The students were reading an English text and working to identify new vocabulary, emotions of the characters and overall comprehension. They then had a chance to act out their favorite parts of the story. It was so delightful. Emma, one of the teachers, told me that drama class/club was very popular with the students. It was quite evident that there are some up and coming actors and actresses from this class!
