Our visit to a primary school
Today we went to a Primary school but it was not as busy as the other one. When we got to the school we saw kids going out onto their play area but they were not going to play, they were going to exercise! The kids in Grades 1 to 6 stood with their classes row by row. They did all different exercises to music. After they exercised they played outside for 10 minutes and they played with people that were in all different grades. Their school starts at 8:10 and ends at 4:30. After we went into a grade 1 classroom to see what they were doing. They were writing in Chinese. After that we went to a grade 5 classroom and they were learning English. Then we went to a grade 6 classroom and I introduced myself and I saw their English book then we said bye. I guess that school wasn't too bad after all because they did not crowd and run after us. In some ways the school is different and in some ways it's the same as our school.
