Chinese Culture Day

Eight Chinese students visited Abingdon School to deliver a fun-packed programme to Year 2 pupils. The pupils took part in making Chinese dumplings which was a fun but slightly messy affair! Whilst the dumplings were cooking for the pupils to try, the volunteers gave a quick lesson in Chinese language, including how to count and say hello. Cooking over, it was time for the pupils to sample their dumplings, which meant a quick lesson in how to use chopsticks! The pupils seemed to manage better than the Volun-tees staff, although some were not that keen on actually eating the dumplings!
