    Link with School in Guiyang China

    We have a link with the Prime Academy school in Guiyang, China. The pupils there are also learning from home. It helps their English to practise speaking, listening and reading it.

    Some members of Oak Class made some videos asking the pupils of Prime Academy some questions. Prime pupils have answered one of the questions - what food they eat! They have sent pictures and explanations of their typical meals. Have a look and see how similar they are to yours.

    Click here to download the pictures and their descriptions with some questions for you to think about. 

    What would you like to know about children living in China? 

    is there anything that you do that you think would be of interest to them? e.g. your favourite hobbies or games?
