How time flies! The Bilingual G3 students have completed studies of their first Unit of Investigation which is focused on the connections between people’s choices and their health.

在学校的时光总是过得那样快,转眼间,开学一个多月了,三年级在第一个探究单元Who We Are的探究之旅已经落下了句点。

Healthy Sports 健康的运动

The third-grade students had a discussion on healthy sports and learned to describe different sports in both Chinese and English. They also found out relevant information and materials on this topic. Some students wondered how we can deal with sports injuries. Driven by this question, the children read lots of materials in this respect. Later they had a chance to experience one of the healthy sports – yoga when they visited the Children’s Yoga Studio.

在“健康的运动”这个环节,三年级的同学一起讨论了有哪些健康的运动,学习了各种运动的中英文表达,接着搜集了相关资料,根据健康运动不同的种类整理资料。有学生提出,运动后受伤要如何处理呢?在问题的驱动下,孩子们自主阅读了运动时受伤如何处理的文本资料。在此基础上,当孩子们去到少儿瑜伽馆体验时,就特别珍惜这次能静下心来感受不一样的健康运动的机会。


Healthy Diet 健康的饮食

Students learned about the categories of food and the essential nutrients needed by human body as well as the way to express them in English. In addition, after analyzing the recipes of our canteen, they had a formal talk with the canteen manager on the dietary issues. In the going-further process, they even created their own food pyramid.

在“健康的饮食”这个环节,孩子们在老师的引导下,自主了解了食物的分类和人体需要的营养素,并在英语阅读课老师的帮助下学会了这些知识的英文表达;另外孩子们还分析了食堂的菜谱,就健康饮食和学校食堂的膳食问题和食堂负责人进行了深入的交流和探讨。在深入探究环节,孩子们归纳并总结出了食物金字塔。

 


During the Mid-Autumn Festival, our little inquirers cooked a healthy dish for their family; In English class, they wrote a short piece of writing of their cooking process. Bearing what a reasonable diet is all about in mind, they once again took actions by designing a healthy diet for their family for one week.

恰逢中秋佳节,我们的小探究者们采取实际行动为家人烹饪了一道健康可口的绿色菜肴;家长们感受到了孩子们在探究课上的成长。在英语写作课上,孩子们还将做菜过程写成了英语小短文。了解了合理膳食概念后,我们的小探究者们再次用实际行动为自己的家庭设计了一个一周的健康饮食搭配。

 


Through these learning activities, students got to understand what a healthy lifestyle is and how to stay healthy. These inquiry-based activities also helped to develop their thinking, communication and self-management skills. Every unit is a novel and meaningful journey, making the world livelier to the children. This is not an end and we are looking forward to more adventures…

就在这些大大小小的探究学习活动中,孩子们了解了什么样的生活方式才健康,如何保持健康。这些探究活动也培养了孩子们的思考、沟通和自我管理技能,每次探究都是一次新奇而充满意义的思想之旅,让世界在孩子眼前变得更加立体。这样的探究活动仍在继续进行……
