The autumn wind is softly and a fragrance of osmanthus is pleasant. On the afternoon of October 18, 2018, in order to let parents walk into the school and feel the children’s daily life; strengthen the communication between the home and the school, the Primary Department of International Curriculum Center in Wuxi Foreign Language School held this parents’ meeting.
On this day, parents and children participated in a variety of activities to experience the strong cultural atmosphere of the camp.
First of all, walked into the hall on the second floor of the school, the walls were full of excellent calligraphy and paintings of the students, which made people feel like they were in the art world. The full literary atmosphere gave us a shock. When we came to the corridor outside of each classroom, we saw all the class assignments, as well as the creative culture.
In class, teachers guided students actively to conduct their independent studies, developed cooperative learning, and used multimedia to assist teaching, so that students can master what they have learned in a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere. The parents watched them and were happy. They paid attention to their children's learning status in class and couldn’t help smiling for their children's excellent performance .Some parents also took out cameras, mobile phones to film a memorable moment .Although each class was only 40 minutes short, the children's excellent performance, active learning and teachers' skilled teaching skills have won the praise of the parents.
After the excellent classes’ presentation, the teachers communicated with the parents face to face. Through communication, parents learned about their children's school life and study, and have a deeper understanding of various school rules and regulations. Parents also filled out the activity feedback forms issued by the school seriously, and put forward their own valuable opinions on the teacher's teaching situation and school work.
