Special task 

There are lots of different languages and ways of communicating in our world.

Mandarin is a language that they speak in China. It is the most spoken language in the whole world, with over 900 million people speaking it!

They do not write their letters like ours, however they do have an alphabet that we can match to ours. 

Here it is:

 

Can you have a go at writing your name in the Mandarin alphabet?

If you have paints, have a go at painting and use the brush strokes to create the beautiful shapes of the letters!

Why not try doing the names of the people you live with too and a portrait of them to go with it.

Do send me lots of photos of your lovely work!
