厉笑影校长也感受到了同学们的激情。正如她所说:“英语学习在今天有更深层次的价值。我们不仅要有流利的表达,纯真的发音,更要把中国的传统、中国的精神、中国的故事、中国的文化,通过我们的语言和工具传递出去。在把培养‘走向世界的现代中国人’为己任也创造了很多奇迹的世外中学,为了自己,为了社会,为了国家,为了更高的使命,为了成为全面发展的各方面人才而继续夯实前进。爱国是我们未来每个人行走天涯的勇气和底气!”

经过反复彩排、挑选,每个班的表演都精彩纷呈,别出心裁。六年级同学围绕ChineseStories的主题,讲述中国不同时期的故事,有的是真实写照,有的是神话传说,也有的是历史典故;七年级同学则以ChineseHeroes为主题,向同学们介绍了著名的历史人物,同学们将人物的励志故事和伟大成就生动地演绎、述说,使观众逐渐了解这些伟人,并对他们产生了敬佩之情。正如六(5)班王雪滢所说:“英语节不仅让我学到很多知识,也让我们的英语水平有所提高,并且人人都参与其中,十分快乐享受。”

从前期准备到游园活动,无一不包含着每位世外人的努力与参与,它的推进更是见证了同学们的成长。“六年级的时候没能参与展演有点遗憾,现在七年级了有机会作为表演者上台演出挺高兴的,也感觉自己进步了,”七(1)班的王宸灏通过一年的学习,成功从观众的身份变为表演者的身份。的确,从六年级到九年级的四年中,所以人都在进步,而英语节便是为这些不断进步的同学提供了展现自我、提升自己、突破自我的舞台。

台上一分钟,台下十年功,为了使表演顺利进行,同学们付出了宝贵的时间与精力。作为表演者,六(4)班的朱彦希说道:“排练过程中,背台词会花费较多时间和精力,如何让观众喜欢表演也需要动脑筋。只有认真准备,演出才会更成功,观众参与的积极性才会更高。”

 八、九年级主题游园

Grade Eight & Nine: Chinese Wisdom and Chinese Miracles

The students in Grade Eightshowed their understanding of “Chinese Wisdom” in many different ways including acting and making speeches. The performances also involved different aspects such as technology, politics, diplomacy and so on. After watching one of the performances about architecture, XieQinyuan from Bilingual Class 4 Grade Eight said, “China has made amazing achievements in architecture. From their presentation, I realized that China’s wisdom in architecture not only made the Chinese civilization more charming, but also made great contributions to the world civilization.” Indeed, our ancestors were talented and left behind lots of things for us to learn and inherit.

The students in the ninthgrade let the audience witness the miracles Chinese people have made throughout 5000 years. China has impressed the world by making thoseChinese dreams come true, such asdiscovering artemisinin and curing millions of people, building the Great Wall in the age without a machine, etc. Every time people look down on China, Chinese people stand out and prove ourselves with these miracles. Xu Yuanyi from Class Six Grade Nine said, “Those miracles are fascinating and unbelievable. Witnessing those, I feel proud for being a Chinese.”

Without the efforts the performers made behind the scenes, the success of the festival wouldn’t be possible. Even though it was tiring to strike a balance between study and the preparation for the festival, the performers learned a lot in the process. “We certainly met difficulties while making preparations, but after we solved those problems, we found ourselves more creative.” said Sun Jiayu, from Class 3 Grade Eight.

 阶梯教室小剧场

Mini Theatre: Fantastic Mr. Fox and The Revival

In the assembly hall,a group of performersfrom Grade Seven and Grade Nine presentedtwo dramason the stage, Fantastic Mr. Fox and The Revival.

The 7th graders’ drama was based on Roald Dahl’s novel Fantastic Mr. Fox.The whole story started from the fox’s cozy little home. The foxes were planning on what to eat for dinner. Everything seemed normal, but when Mr. Fox sneaked out of his fox hole, three angry and mean farmers were waiting for him at the entrance of the hole, pointing their guns at him. Luckily, Mr. Fox was quick and bright enough to escape the shooting at the cost of his tail and dinner. That was when the tension built.

From the alert and resourceful Mr. Fox to the selfish and cunning farmers, the performers displayed the personalities of the characters vividly with their actions, intonations and facial expressions. The humorous script and acting often made the audience burst into laughter. At the end of the show, the audience had a chance to interact with the performers and act out the feelings of the characters in certain settings of the story.

“It was brilliant to act on the stage with the audience watching and laughing. My hard work finally paid off.”said Wenhao Ni from Class Four Grade Seven, who acted Bunce. Yuchen Cong from Bilingual Class Two Grade Seven played the role as Bean.When they werepreparingfor this show, they were faced with many problems. For example, they failed to findsome of the props like the shovels, so they used dustpans to replace them, which turned out to be a great idea andmade the audience laugh.“Acting is fun, and it inspires me a lot, so I ardently love acting,” he said.

Theninth graders presented a show named the Revival. The students got the inspirations from the movie The Wandering Earth. When the human beings had to migrate to their new homeland “Nieou”, they discovered the truth behind the destruction of the earth, includingthe poaching of the elephants, deforestation and the nuclear radiation. With the thought-provoking story, the performers wanted to spread the message that it was never too late for us to protect our homeland. “Since ancient times, Chinese people have believed in the harmony between human beings and nature. By reminding the people to cherish our homeland, we are also spreading our Chinese spirit,” said Zhuojun Jiang, one of the performers of the Revival from Class One Grade Nine.

 球类馆:一曲颂歌越古今

一曲颂歌贯穿了上下五千年的中华文化,而同学们聚集在一起将这一首颂歌通过现代化、国际化的方式演绎出来。

 音乐教室

Music Room: Chef’s Table, Mini Lecture and Imitation Show

在中国几千年文化中,美食文化是不可或缺的一部分。在音乐教室,同学们跟随着七年级同学,开启了一段奇妙的美食之旅。首先,同学介绍了不同种类的食材工具以及烹饪方法。接着,同学们观看了制作炸豆腐和青椒肉片的视频,六年级的三位同学还跟着学长亲自尝试了制作美食。

此后,八年级同学带来的Mini Lecture也让观众们收获颇丰,通过探讨网络暴力,同学们了解了网络暴力的危害性,以及如何预防和应对网络暴力;通过消费者心理的讲座,同学们了解了如何选择优质的产品和理智消费。

最后,第一次参加英语节的六年级同学带来了两场英语学科成果展示。从中国故事“郑人买履”,到英语歌曲联唱,再到英语朗诵《世外桃源》,展现了六年级同学踏进世外校园以来的一个个收获。

六(1)班盛曦萱说《世外桃源》中同学们充满感情的朗诵令她感触最深。她说:“来到世外后真是收获满满,我也很想表达自己对世外的爱。”“郑人买履”的表演者之一,六(3)班罗宇石在表演后说道:“我很喜欢这个活动,也很高兴能用我们喜欢的方式庆祝祖国母亲的生日。”

 图书馆:好书分享

School Library: Learning in Book Sharing

In addition to food, literature is an another way to learn about culture. In the school library, students from Grade Seven and Grade Eight introduced to the audience two famous books about friendship: Wonder and Charlotte's Web.

R.J.Palacio’s book, Wonder, tells a story about a boy named August, who was born with facial differences. He was encouraged by his father to enter the school and found a bosom friend. The eight-graders told the story in a special way: TV interview. The host invited “R.J.Palacio” to her TV show, and they talked about the reasons why Palacio wrote Wonder. Other students acted out a few stories in the book.

The second book was Charlotte's Webwritten by E.B.White. After introducing the plot of this book, the students in Grade 7 designed some interactive activities. First, the audience were asked to stick the animals to the map of the farmhouse according to the instructions in the book the performers read for them. Then, they divided the audience into groups to act different characters. The most interesting part was that the audienceneeded to think of four words which Charlotte could write on the web to save Wilber's life.

The book sharing not only helps the students understand two interesting books better, but also makes them realize the importance of friendship. As the saying goes, "Use a book as a bee does flowers." There is always something we can learn from books.

 B207多功能教室

Multi-Functional Room: Dubbing Show, News Broadcast and Comic Strips

A series of English performances were shown in the Multi-functional Room. The first was a dubbing show by theseventhgraders. They conveyed their open-mindedness through the dubbing for heroes such as Malala Yousafzai.

In the second session, the students from Grade Eight delivered a speech about English debating. After being shown the examples of English debates, the audience actively participated in a mock debate. When students felt afraid to speak because they were worried about making grammar mistakes or were unfamiliar with debating skills, the hostesses not only explained common terms and sentence patterns, but also encouraged students not to be fearful of challenges. "English debate gives us a window to interact with the world. Participate with an open heart, and only then can we be more flexible in the English debate.”

The third and fourth sessions were presented by the ninth graders. They combined the comic strip drawing method learned in the class with the essence of Chinese miracles, Shanhaijing, to create their own comic stories. The hosts Shen Jiani and GuShiqi from Class Three Grade Nine said, “in such a relaxing atmosphere, students can not only appreciate the miracle of the rise of Chinese comics in recent years, but also build confidence in creating Chinese miracles with their own efforts."

 作为世外中学一年一度的大型活动,英语节绽放着属于世外学子的“桃源里的中国梦”!它的意义不仅限于英语学习,更在于让同学们置身其中,在感受传统文化的同时放眼于世界,成为一名走向世界的现代中国人。

In this English Festival, the students have not only improved their English skills, but also inherited Chinese wisdom and witnessed Chinese miracles. They will always keep a Chinese heart while integrating with the world.
