Celebrating the Chinese New Year

1st February 2022
In our Reception and Year 1 classes, the children have enjoyed learning about the Chinese New Year - the Year of the Tiger - which begins today!
Many different activities and resources have been accessible to the children.  They have studied books about the Chinese celebrations and have looked carefully at Chinese food packets before preparing, cooking and eating Chinese dumplings.  Children made dragon masks and Chinese lanterns.  They learnt why the colour red is important and had red glitter in a tray in which they practised writing Chinese symbols.
