Song:
My paddle is keen and bright flashing with silver
Follow the wild goose flight. Dip dip and swing.
Dip, dip and swing her back flashing with silver.
Follow the wild goose flight. Dip dip and swing.
To introduce the 'Moon Festival', we started with the story of Hou Yi and Chang'E. Story telling first and then role playing.
Story
A long, long, long time ago, there were ten suns in the sky. Each took its turn. 
But one day all ten suns appeared together. The Emperor Yao asked for help. 
'Please help me to kill all but one of the suns!  
I will give a pill, an elixir of life to the one who succeeds.’ 
There came Houyi. He was a famous archer. He shot nine suns. He saved the Earth. 
The Emperor rewarded Houyi with a pill, the elixir of life, and advised him:  
"Make no haste to swallow this pill, but first prepare yourself with prayer and fasting for a year". 
Houyi took the pill home. He hid it under a rafter. He began healing his spirit.  
In the midst of this, Houyi was called again by the emperor.  
While he was gone, Chang'e noticed a white beam of light from the roof. 
She discovered the pill. She swallowed it. Immediately, she found that she could fly.
Just at that moment, Houyi returned home. He realized what had happened. He shouts:  
'Chang'e, come back, stay with me!’ But Chang flew out the window into the sky.  
Chang’e is now trapped on the Moon. She is alone with her pet the Jade Rabbit and Wu Kang. 
Now, every year, between September and October, the Moon Bridge appears for one night only. 
It connects the Earth to the Moon. During this one night, Chang’e and Hou Yi can meet together. 
Look carefully at the moon. You might see Chang’e and Houyi.
Poem
Patience, patience, what you need is patience,
In the heart of your patience, you will find peace and satisfaction.

In igloos of ice and towers of earth,

On mountains, islands, snow and sand,

Families together in every land.
