This week we have been learning all about the celebration of Chinese New Year. We first learnt the story of the Chinese Zodiac, you can watch the story here-
We learnt that this year is the year of the rabbit, Miss Ashton was born in the year of the rat, Dawn was born in the year of the dragon, our older children are born in the year of the dog and our younger children were born in the year of the pig.
We enhanced our home corner with some Chinese decorations, lots of red and gold for good luck, some Chinese food, chopsticks and some Chinese clothes.
We also had a go at making our own decorations we made Chinese lanterns and Dragons.
We all really enjoyed watching The dragon dance and the Lion dance. Follow the link to see how amazing they are!
For cooking this week we tasted some Chinese food, we had noodles and prawn crackers. We also used our very own pair of chopsticks to eat them! they were so tricky!
We finished off our week by preforming the Dragon song we had learnt.
