Celebrating the Chinese New Year

9th February 2018
Our Reception Class children enjoyed preparing for and learning about the Chinese New Year!
The new year starts on 16th February and is the Year of the Dog.  The children made origami dogs, lanterns and dragon masks, as well as painting Chinese characters from the writing system.
The children enjoyed helping to prepare, cook and eat Chinese food!  Afterwards, they painted and constructed lion and dragon heads ready to take to the hall for dragon dancing and ribbon dancing.
