Student care center Chinese

This year, I just started Primary One. I like school. I like student care even more.

After school, I take the school bus to my student care centre. This is my timetable.

When I arrive, I sign my attendance. I collect my lunch at the canteen.

Lunch is tasty and healthy. There is brown rice, meat, vegetables and fruits.

Some vegetables are new to me. Teacher says I can eat a little bit first. When I am used to the taste of the new vegetables, I can eat more if I like.

Teacher walks my class to the toilet. I know how to shower myself. Daddy/Mummy taught me at home. I like to stay clean.

It is time to rest. I lie down on my mat to power nap for forty minutes. The air-conditioned nap room is quiet and comfortable.

After my nap, I wake up and walk to my classroom. I put my bag in my cubby hole.

My classroom has posters to encourage me.

Teacher reads my school communication book to see what homework I have. I learn my spelling and 听写, and finish my homework.

Teacher helps me when I raise my hand to ask questions.

After I finish my work, she writes what I have completed in my student care communication book. Sometimes she suggests what my parents can teach me at home.

In class, I can practise my handwriting with worksheets, or Chinese calligraphy.

If I have extra time, I visit the library. I can borrow English and Chinese books.

I like Chinese festivals. My parents will come to the student care centre and make dumplings, mooncakes or lanterns with me.

Enrichment Lesson is my favourite time. I have new activities every day. I learn Zumba, Wushu, Cup Stacking, and sports. Teacher speaks in English and Chinese during lesson time.

I have classmates from many countries – Singapore, Malaysia, Japan, Thailand, and Australia. They learn how to read, write, and speak Chinese here, like me.

We practise our song performance for the Dragonboat Festival.

At 6.00 pm, we water the plants in the big garden. We play soccer, badminton, archery, and many games in the field.
