Chinese New Year in Reception

On Monday 30th January, we celebrated Chinese New Year in Reception.
We learned how families prepare for and celebrate Chinese New Year and why each year is named after an animal. This year is the year of the rooster.
We all learned actions and moves for a dragon dance and took turns to parade in a Chinese dragon
(provided by Mrs Merchant Smith - thank you) and learned a song with actions.
We also enjoyed tasting some chinese food and writing chinese characters to represent numbers and words.
Lilian in Year 1 lent us some lovely artefacts to look at and discuss too, so we have learned a lot of information about Chinese New Year and we all had a great day!
