The Mid-autumn festival is the most harmonious, the most beautiful, and most poetic festival. It is also the most talented, most warm, most humane festival. On the occasion of the Mid-Autumn festival, our school carried out the poetry creation recitation activity with the theme of “exporting into beautiful poems, gathering in the Mid-Autumn festival”. Senior children and their parents gathered together to enjoy the activity.
Firstly, the girls in grade four and five brought a song full of the soft and beautiful atmosphere of the Mid-Autumn festival called “journey to the moon”. When the song ended and the dance ended, it seemed that we could smell the fragrance of Osmanthus.
The kids of P4A, they opened up smell and taste, climbed to the moon to taste its wonderful taste, and went into a sweet dream in the bright moonlight.
Under the same moonlight, children from P4B were appreciating the moon. Not so much to appreciate the moon, but to enjoy the sound of running water, the family nestling in warm affection.
Baby moon’s birthday is coming! P4C’s kids became painters, poets, musicians, dancers and scientists, circling the moon and watching it grow fat into a full moon! What an interesting thought!
Children of P4D infused a babbling imagination into the eating of Chinese myths and traditions, such as Chang ‘e, Houyi, Sunwukong, Tangyuan, Zongzi and moon cakes. Only a child could have such a cute idea.
After appreciating the fourth grade students’ wonderful performance, “Fei hua ling” game set off the enthusiasm of the audience, the children were full of poetry and many verses were spoken about the moon.
After a short game, the performance was brought by P5A. Children’s eyes are the purest; nothing can stop a family from wanting to be together.
What is the Mid-Autumn festival like in Wuxi? Listen to mothers tell stories, taste moon cakes, taste crabs, go to the park…… the most important is family togetherness, all these were in the reading of P5B students
The little poets from P5C asked everyone “What is the moon?” This is a philosophical question. They told us that the moon is a sign of warmth and love, a longing for reunion.
Through clever design and rich imagination, P5D performed ‘two moons’, one in the water and one in the sky. Two moons, different thoughts!
Next, we heard P6A, which combined the full moon with the reunited moon. In the wonderful moment spent with family, the moon is our common watch at this moment.
Small families need to reunite, and those who are away from home are looking forward to reunions. Listen, the students of P6B are representing the overseas compatriots to express their yearning for the motherland!
A rain of Osmanthus, shake off the P6C children’s clear chanting sound. Every family heard the sound of laughter, smell a tree, refreshing Osmanthus incense…
Finally, each class obtains the best recitation prize, the best typhoon prize, the best deduction prize respectively; the children are filled with the honor, joyfully.
As the event drew to a close, Dong shared the story behind the reading.
Writing, reading and interpreting poems, this diversified poetry activity not only enables the children to have a profound and happy festival experience of the traditional Mid-Autumn festival, but also, more importantly, kindles their enthusiasm for poetry creation and triggers their deeper thinking on poetry works. The moon wanwan flower lane shadoQw, reunion poem sent. Here, Wuxi Xiehe Bilingual International School wishes you a happy Mid-Autumn festival, good health and a happy family!
