Year 2 learn Chinese!

This week Year 2 have been comparing life in a Chinese school to life in our school. Today all of Year 2 explored writing numbers 1 - 12 in Kanji and then other nouns like 'tree', 'car' and 'rain'.

We used this website to search for each word, hear it spoken and then learn how to write it in kanji:


We found out that there are no phonemes in Chinese writing, only several thousand characters to learn by sight. You can't Fred a Kanji!  Imagine having several thousand Red Words to learn!
