´春节快乐！Happy Spring Festival!
Mandarin is taught at Goodwood Primary School to reception - year 5 students. The Mandarin program incorporates both language and culture into lessons throughout the year.
In 2019 I was successful in securing a grant for the school to enhance our Mandarin program through a chosen innovative approach. Our idea involves producing a range of inquiry and storytelling videos to be used by both classroom teachers, as well as in the Mandarin room, to allow a more integrated approach to student learning. In 2020 we will be trialling the use of these videos in some classrooms and I will be aiming to, where possible, make connections in inquiry focus between students' daily classroom and their Mandarin lessons.
