Mandarin for Schools

MFL & PPA Cover

Little Mandarin Classes works closely with Primary Schools fulfilling their Modern Foreign Language, PPA Cover and Clubs. We work in line with the National Curriculum ensuring Children meet the milestones and learn Mandarin Chinese through an interactive and creative learning method. We believe strongly in making classes fun therefore we developed a strong curriculum using Story-telling, Role-play and British Sign Language.


Early Years, KS1 & KS2 Children

We have you set for all key stages - with programmes available to Early Years, KS1 and KS2 Children. Why not start at a young age? Our classes are physical as well as educational.


Reading, Writing, Speaking & Listening

Our programmes teach Children how to read, write, speak and listen in Mandarin Chinese. Our non-overwhelming approach exposes Children to Mandarin in a fun and creative way.


Free Online Learning Resources

We have a ton of free online learning resources to support the Children's learning in and outside of School. We highly encourage Parents and Teachers to also utlise the resources.


Vocabulary Children will learn

We cover an extensive range of topics including Greetings, Family, Numbers, Colours, Emotions, Going to School, Subjects, Countries, Talking about how they feel, Days of the Week, Cutlery, Sports, Hobbies, Lifestyle, Describing, Clothes, Shopping, Time, Directions, Weather, Bodyparts, Nature, Elements, Space, Technology, Eating Out and so much more. Each vocabulary is taught alongside with British Sign Language.

Learning Progression for Early Years, KS1 & KS2 Children

At Little Mandarin Classes - we have a dedicated curriculum to help improve young Children to develop their speaking, reading, listening and writing in Mandarin Chinese. Keyed with Story-telling, Role-play and British Sign Language, Children adopt new skills to boost their confidence, memory-retention, ability to hold a conversation and critical thinking. We emphasise on building social cohesion and team work

Learning Progression for KS2

The year 3 class really enjoy their Mandarin class every Monday. The level of teaching is fantastic, as the children feed off their teachers enthusiasm, using repetition and music as a learning aid. The class was able to communicate very quickly and respond to questions with ease. I was initially surprised with how quickly they learnt Mandarin and how much they were able to retain. I am glad our School has chosen Little Mandarin Classes to teach our children and would recommend them to any other children’s organisation.

Colvestone Primary School

The classes are great, very interactive and well resourced. They are also pitched well for the age range with lots of singing and movement. The children are learning a lot and loving it.
