Chinese New Year
Friday 12th February | No comments yet
On Wednesday we celebrated Chinese New Year. The children came to school dressed in red as this is a lucky colour in China. The children listened to the story of how the Chinese New Year started – a race with lots of animals. Each animal then had a year named after them. This year is the year of the monkey. We read the story ‘Cleversticks’ which is about a Chinese boy who isn’t good at anything until he uses 2 paintbrushes as chopsticks and eats a biscuit. So we thought we would give it a try; the results were interesting – some children even tried eating fruit using chopsticks!
We also made a huge Chinese lion which the children used to dance around the classroom to music. They had to try and bend their knees up and down while moving forward.
We have had a busy but fantastic week!
