Climbing snow capped mountains, crossing grasslands, traversing more than ten provinces and driving 25000 miles – in October 1936, the three main forces of the Red Army met with jiangtaibao in Huining, marking the end of the 25000 mile long march. The great long march spirit forged by the Chinese Communists and officers and men of the Red Army with their lives and blood is the precious spiritual wealth of the Chinese nation

each generation has its own long march, and each generation should take its own long march. In order to commemorate the 85th anniversary of the victory of the Chinese workers’ and peasants’ Red Army in the Long March, CNR launched a series of reports “new youth on the long march” to see how Chinese youth can give better answers and write more magnificent poems on the long march in the new era

CNR Guangzhou news on October 22: “the five stars of the Red Army twinkle on the school flag, the road under our feet continues the new Long March, and we are a new generation of Red Army small soldiers…” in the long march spirit exhibition room, more than a dozen “small Red Army” sang the song of the Red Army primary school around ye wanwen

in 1934, the Central Red Army started the long march from the core area of the Central Soviet Area in southern Jiangxi and Western Fujian. Guangdong became the preferred direction for the ten thousand mile journey. During this period, the Red Army successively broke through three enemy blockades. Since then, the spark of the great long march spirit has been lit everywhere in Lingnan

for ye wanwen, a music teacher of Guangning Red Army primary school in Zhaoqing, Guangdong Province, the Chinese workers’ and peasants’ Red Army, this history is very familiar. “I think the most important thing is ideological guidance, because students’ understanding of the spirit of the long march is relatively simple. We need continuous guidance to make children deeply understand the connotation of the spirit of the long march.”

Ye wanwen regards himself as a “bridge” connecting students and schools, as well as students and the spirit of the long march

music teacher’s “Long March”

in 2010, after graduating from the Musicology Major of Shaoguan University, ye wanwen returned to a middle school in Zhongshan, Guangdong Province. However, due to special reasons, as soon as she entered the school, she assumed the responsibility of head teacher

“at that time, I didn’t have a deep understanding of what kind of work the head teacher was and how to solve various problems in students’ study and life.” in the face of rebellious students, ye wanwen was confused but didn’t escape. “Because I was’ young and competitive’.”

after becoming a teacher, ye wanwen prepared a diary for herself. “Those senior teachers, seeing that I am new here, will wake me up with some words, and I will write down what they said to me and encourage myself to move forward.”

this three-year teaching experience not only makes ye wanwen fade away, but also allows her to start looking for a “stage” that can better realize her own value

in 2013, ye wanwen came to Guangning County, Zhaoqing from Zhongshan and started her second stop as a teacher in Kengkou town. Why did you leave your hometown and come to rural primary schools? Her reason is very simple, “because becoming a primary school music teacher has always been my dream.”

in the Central Primary School of Kengkou Town, ye wanwen became the first principal music teacher in the school. She has no musical instruments, no teaching materials, and students have not even received art education, but she has no idea of flinching back

“what impressed me most was that when I first walked into the classroom, the students applauded desperately, but they didn’t know what I taught. When I began to introduce myself, they immediately calmed down and saw that they wanted to make friends with me.”

according to ye wanwen’s memory, in the first class, she always held an organ or other musical instruments. The students were very excited because they had never seen it. “They haven’t figured out how to sing this song, just want to know about this instrument, because these are new to them and the children are curious.”

whenever the music rings, it’s not just the students in front of Ye wanwen who prick their ears. “Sometimes the students in the next class are having a Chinese class. When they hear the sound of the piano, they sing along with our class.”

high spirited red songs came out of the classroom of this rural primary school. “I really feel the simple feelings of Guangning people and the innocent character of the children here. They infected me, urged me to make progress step by step, and made me like Guangning more and more.”

also unforgettable to ye wanwen, there is a “home visit road”

at the Central Primary School in Kengkou Town, a large part of the students were left behind children. Because their parents were not around, ye wanwen began to pay a home visit in order to prevent “free” students from forming bad habits

“the road that the students took to school that night was dark, narrow and full of trees. The cross growth of bamboos on both sides made the road narrower. As an adult, I was a little afraid, not to mention a seven or eight year old student.”

when I came to the student’s home, ye wanwen said that he seemed to see the scene only in TV. “All the students are covered with sweet potatoes and taro under the bed. There is no wardrobe or electrical appliances in the room. There is only an old color TV.”

“you should listen to the teacher.” the students’ grandparents repeated this sentence countless times

Ye wanwen looked into the students’ eyes and reflected her future road, a “Long March” for music teachers: through art, let the children see a broader world and go out

train the next generation of “New Youth”

under the guidance of Ye wanwen, many students of Kengkou Central Primary School have achieved good results in various music competitions in counties and cities, and her story has also attracted more attention

in 2016, ye wanwen was transferred to Guangning Red Army primary school, which was also called Guangning South Street No. 2 primary school at that time, and directly served as the head of the school’s music department and the counselor of the young pioneers brigade. “Many teachers work longer than me, and my former school is a rural primary school. Under such a contrast, how do you ask the teachers here to recognize me?”

facing the eyes of others, ye wanwen is very clear. The louder the voice of doubt, the stronger his inner faith will be

“in order to enable students to learn music well, I ask teachers to complete a week’s teaching plan two days before school starts.” through a simple arrangement, the teaching effect has been greatly improved, which makes ye wanwen gradually break other people’s prejudice against her

as a young pioneer counselor, how to pass on the red gene from generation to generation is also ye wanwen’s important responsibility

in Guangning in history, Ruan Xiaoxian, Peng Pai, Zhou Qijian and Huang Xuezeng, four famous leaders of the peasant movement in Guangdong, have successively led the peasant movement here; Today, Guangning is also the only administrative county in Zhaoqing where all villages and towns are old revolutionary base areas

Ye wanwen believes that if we only tell students about the spirit of the great long march in the form of classes and lectures, the results may not be satisfactory. To carry forward the red spirit, we must let students start from life and learning style

in 2019, Zhaoqing Guangning Red Army Primary School of the Chinese workers’ and peasants’ Red Army was officially awarded the flag and card. Since then, the students have a set of “chic” school uniforms – the military uniforms of the Chinese workers’ and peasants’ Red Army

“rhythmic gymnastics was very popular on the Internet at that time. The vice principal and I wanted to design a set of rhythmic gymnastics of our school in combination with the melody of the red song Nanniwan.” now, as soon as the class bell rings, the “Little Red Army” of class one will come to the playground in order and jump out of the unique scenery of Guangning County

moreover, ye wanwen also introduced a student-centered and interactive team class (Young Pioneers activity class) into the school. “In the process of showing red stories, students not only exercised their eloquence and courage, but also gave them the opportunity to show themselves and let them get the joy of success.”

in recent years, Ye wanwen has cultivated a large number of outstanding young pioneers at the national, provincial and municipal levels. Among them, 12 were rated as “excellent young pioneers of Zhaoqing City”, 3 as “excellent young pioneers of Guangdong Province”, and 2 as “excellent young pioneers of national Red Army primary schools”; In 2020, her paper on the work of young pioneers in primary school moral education was published in the National Journal educational research

it takes ten years to cultivate trees and a hundred years to cultivate people. On the way to cultivate the next generation of “New Youth”, ye wanwen set himself a “special” teaching goal

“the development of the country needs talents in many aspects, and the future development direction of students is also determined by himself, so we focus on cultivating their spirit of overcoming difficulties. In this way, when we grow up, we can bring the red spirit learned in childhood into our work no matter what field.”

now, ye wanwen is responsible for music teaching in ten classes, The total number of students is nearly 500. Every year, she will send away a group of graduates and usher in a group of new faces. She feels that she is only a small role and a small passer-by in the students’ life
