This week we have been learning about Chinese New Year. This year, 2017, is the year of the Rooster. We discovered why each year is associated with an animal and found out which animal we were, depending on our birth year. We enjoyed retelling the story of The Great Race, which I am sure your child will be able to tell you all about!
We have been very creative and busy making Chinese lanterns, lucky red envelopes and decorative dragons (including a huge Dragon head) for our celebratory dragon dance. We also made musical instruments and performed our dance in the playground!
