HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR
Happy Chinese New Year!
This week the children have been learning all about Chinese New Year! As you will know, this year is the year of the Rat and the children began by learning the story of how the years were named! We acted out the story using masks.
The children have also tried Chinese food, and discovered how tasty sweet and sour sauce was! We have also been making dancing dragons, lucky money wallets and practiced writing Chinese numbers!
At the end of the week, we compared how celebrations that we have in our country and family are the same and how they are different. Please speak to your children about what they have learnt this week!
