Celebrating Chinese New Year
We enjoyed celebrating Chinese New Year together by all wearing as much red clothing to school as possible and by listening to Alicia tell us about her experience of the Chinese New Year during our school assembly. She told us that it is tradition to wear new clothing for the new year and to give gifts of money to each other.
Key Stage 1 took the celebrations even further by decorating their classroom and completing a round robin of activities including throughout the day. The children each got to make noodles, Chinese lanterns and Chinese envelopes which they then put gold coins in and took home. A big thank you to Alicia, Mia and their parents for sharing their experiences with us and providing fortune cookies, dumplings , sweets and decorations for the classes.
Great fun was had by all!
