The ‘Chinese Bridge’ Chinese Show for Primary School Students is an international contest launched in 2021 and organized by the Centre for Language Education and Cooperation. The Chinese show aims to provide a stage for young Chinese learners worldwide to demonstrate their Chinese language proficiencies, to stimulate the motivation of learning Chinese in joy and fun and lay a good foundation for the long term sustainable Chinese language learning.
The event consists of two stages: preliminary UK competition and the worldwide final. In 2022, Tetherdown Primary School participated in the first round of the UK competition presenting the videos below. These amazing children have finished their video shoot, and we will let you know the result of the competition in due course.
Hello, my name is Gabriel, I am 7, I am going to sing a song called ‘the little baby’.
I am looking forward to your return, my little baby,
I am looking forward to your hugs, my little baby.
I want to hold your hands so much,
Lying on the hillside,
Listening to you silently tell me your happy stories.

Hello, my name is Lottie, I'm 8 years old, this song, called ‘the little stars’, is for you all.
Twinkling, twinkling, glittering,
The sky is full of little stars.
Hang them in the sky to make lights,
Like many small blinking eyes.
