We had a funny week last week with the snow arriving. However, we managed to squeeze in some Chinese New Year celebrations before the snow got us and closed school for a day.
The children loved trying the different Chinese foods and some of them tried things they’d never had before. Not everyone was quite so sure at first but they gave it a go.
We we also decided that we wanted to make a dragon after seeing one on the Chinese New Year book in our classroom.
The children had clear ideas about what they wanted the dragon to look like. They knew they wanted to dragon to have fire and to have red scales.
We loved learning about the story of the Chinese Zodiac and finding out which year we were born in.
Can you remember the story of the Chinese animals? Can you remember which year you were born in?
