Chinese Cinderella autobiography for Year 7

01 December 2017

In English, Year 7 pupils have been busy working on a project about the autobiography by Adeline Yen Mah named ‘Chinese Cinderella’. We were put into five groups, each with a different category such as Marriage Traditions in China, Chinese Food, Foot Binding, The Chinese Dragon and Chinese New Year. We spent a number of our English lessons researching and planning our given topic then put together individual posters and a group PowerPoint presentation.

Next, we presented them to the rest of our class. I am very glad that Chinese Cinderella was chosen as our first class reading assignment as it taught us how to be self-confident young women and to always aim high. The only regret I have is that I couldn't read the book a second time!
