The March school break is upon us, and both parents and children are all set to enjoy this short break from the usual school routines and homework marathons.
Language is an integral part of our daily lives, and language learning is a continuous journey. School holidays are, therefore, perfect for authentic language learning experiences to take place!
We have put together a list of activities that are happening during the March holiday week that will guarantee your little ones loads of joy and laughter while learning how immensely fun the Chinese language can be!
1. Go Trishaw Go: Read and Play! 《三轮车跑得快》儿童读游会
Part of the #BuySingLit movement, which celebrates local literary works, this family-friendly story event includes drawing sessions, the singing of nursery rhymes, and a game of “Spot the Building, Find the Teddy Bear”. The event is free, but registration is required.
2. Family Theatre - The Legend of the Monkey King

4. My Family Story 2-Day Cultural Camp (for 9-12 year-olds)
Organized by Grassroots Bookroom and Lulele Learning Space, the primary objective of this camp is to let children learn more about their roots – from understanding their family tree, the concept of 家谱, to generation sequence (辈分),and knowing meanings behind their (Chinese) names… all taught with stories, fun poems and craft!
5. Dandelion's Sakura Camp (for 5-8 year-olds)
Centred around a hand-picked story book《朋朋爱盖章，砰！》, your little one will be engaged in active learning through the use of our specially designed thematic story pack, which contains a wealth of complementary resources that allows for learning to take place even after the camp!
We have also invited popular local picture book author and illustrator Ah Guo 阿果 to conduct a segment of the camp! He will be guiding the participants to express emotions in both words and illustrations.
