Safe Arrival in Shanghai!

Day One


We arrived safely and I have now been up for 31 hours in an attempt to beat the jet lag!


This evening we had brief welcome and information talks from Charlie Stripp and Debbie Morgan and a chance to meet some of the other mastery specialists. Tomorrow we meet the Chinese teachers for the first time and are very excited about it.

Day Two


We met the Chinese teachers today. We have a packed two weeks ahead and they both seem lovely! They like to be called Jinjin and Zhang (pronounced Chang).


I am looking forward to Friday when we will be teaching fractions in Jinjin’s school.


Here are some photos from today, we had a great lunch! We successfully managed chopsticks but I was scared of the prawns. Green soup for pudding was unusual but lovely!
