This week at home and at school we have been doing a lot of work about the Chinese new year celebration. We have created a fact sheet about how it is celebrated, made lanterns, practised using chopsticks to pick things up with and had a go at some Chinese writing to make Happy new year decorations. In Maths we have been writing numbers 1 to 10 in Chinese and we have been buying items at a Chinese shop using 1p's and even had a go at buying 2 items! To finish with we did a Chinese dragon parade with musical instruments. I think we did scare away the evil spirits! What a great week it has been and the children thoroughly enjoyed it. Happy new year everyone and stay safe!
