Chinese New Year
Date: 6th Feb 2017 @ 1:30pm
This week we have been learning all about Chinese New Year.
We read the story of "The Great Race"
The children enjoyed finding out about how the animals were quarrelling over who the year would be named after. They were disappointed with the sly rat who climbed on the bull's back to win the race and we discussed if he won fairly.
We found out all about how Chinese New Year is celebrated. We completed a dragon dance in the hall and even chose to do it in class.
We looked at different Chinese foods and set up a Chinese restaurant and looked at Chinese clothes.
