List Of Fun Activities
Winter Wonderland 2023 Hong Kong brings a magical twist to the routine classes. No, we are not planning to make children sit behind desks and write down English words that simply bounce off of their heads. Instead, we introduce them to fun activities that will keep them captivated and entertained throughout the day. While they giggle and have fun, they will also be learning newer nuances of the English language. Seeing how they are having fun while doing it, they will be able to retain what they have learned much more efficiently.
See how that is a win-win?
From singing Christmas Carols to interacting with fellow learners in English, there is so much your children can do on the day.
Here is the list of fun activities that are going to keep the young ones hooked to this remarkable English learning camp.
Christmas Related Vocabulary
It is important to stay true to the theme now, isn’t it? When children of K1 to K3 visit the camp, they will be introduced to new English words related to the Christmas festivals. From twinkling lights to jingle bells, ornaments to tinsels, carols to feasts, there is so much to know about a plethora of things related to Christmas.
An introduction to vocabulary related to Christmas will create a strong foundation to further make sentences or initiate conversations about the festival. Well, one day they will be able to deliver speeches about the merriment that Christmas brings along with it. But for now, we will be focussing on showing them a glimpse of Christmas with an ‘English’ filter.
At the end of the day, they will be able to actively identify English words that describe Christmas, things used during the festivals, the fun aspects of the annual celebration, and much more! All this while they have loads of fun with their peers!
Christmas Art and Craft
The Christmas arts and crafts aim to help children display their artistic flair. It will help them improve their cognitive skills, develop creativity and also associate the English words that they have learned with solid things. The tiny tots will be encouraged to draw festive sceneries, Christmas trees, ornaments, and of course, Santa Claus!
They will also engage in making crafts. For instance, they will be provided with the materials required to make Christmas tree hangings, clay decor, and personalised Christmas cards. Children can write down their well-wishes in English while experimenting with colourful pens, markers, stickers and glitters.
This activity is perfect to fuel their talent, creativity, and innovative thinking. It is a good thing that children can see what their friends are making, take inspiration, and get a new creative perspective. This constructive method of learning is only possible when you bring English teaching into a festival setup. Aren’t we aiming for the best of both worlds!?
English Christmas Games
During the Winter Wonderland camp, several games will be conducted that will have an interesting Christmas theme while engaging children in learning new things in English. You can expect to see games revolving around finding new English words related to Christmas (word search), oral communication among peers, hangman, charades, and mini trivia among others!
The games will bring a wide smile to the children’s faces and also push them toward having a better English vocabulary. These activities are even more special than usual seeing how we are creating an interactive atmosphere during a festive gathering. Our English Christmas Games will help the young minds hop around while they learn something productive.
How is Christmas complete without the infamous Holiday tales? One of the best ways to attain mastery in English is to hear stories to understand how the wordings are used in sentences. We bring this to children in a very fun way by narrating stories related to Christmas. These can range from traditional tales to modern interpretations of age-old stories.
You may have heard these stories before on television, or seen them represented in plays or movies. However, Winter Wonderland 2023 Hong Kong adds a special splash of English language to these regular tales. When your children hear the alluring stories in English, they will be able to grab on to a few sentences and a few words are sure to imprint themselves in their minds.
Children can familiarise themselves with the biblical story of the birth of Jesus, Mary, Joseph and the Shepherds. They can also enjoy tales that involve reindeer, elves, magical adventures, and of course, the superhero of Christmas – Santa Claus!
Reading and sharing stories aloud has always been a Christmas tradition in families. Winter Wonderland 2023 Hong Kong aims to bring this practice to an English learning platform. The stories not only teach them a word or two in English but also give them inspirational messages and moral lessons.
