Mandarin Chinese for Primary Schools – Launch Event

Rosendale children for website 2On Tuesday 3 December, we were excited to launch Mandarin Chinese for Primary Schools. Funded by HSBC’s Global Education Programme, the project will run for five years initially and support primary schools that wish to study China and Mandarin Chinese in sharing best practice and developing resources.  It will also encourage much-needed research into effective strategies for teaching Mandarin in UK primary schools.

Headteachers and teachers gathered at IOE’s John Adams Hall in central London for a mini-conference on 3 December to mark the beginning of the Mandarin Chinese for Primary Schools initiative. We were delighted to welcome headteachers and their staff from the 30 primary schools that will lead the way in this first year.
