This week we learnt how to do calligraphy during our Mandarin lesson.
We were practicing our numbers while learning to do calligraphy. We first learnt a little about the history. Then we learnt how to hold the brush - two fingers in front, two fingers behind and the thumb is resting on the side. We used mats that looked like we were using ink but we were only dipping our brush into water!
Thanks to our fabulous Mandarin teacher Liu Lao Shi for a great lesson!
