Chinese New Year

Foundation, Year 1 on January 20th 2020

We have been learning about Chinese New Year. We read stories about how people celebrate, watched dragon and lion dances and read non-fiction texts. During trekking we used ribbons and pom poms to create our own dragon dances, focussing on different movements such as up and down, round and round and side to side. In the afternoon we had a Chinese banquet and tasted different foods. We ended the day with a dual language story read by Mrs Bowell and Mrs Lau and learnt how to say hello and goodbye in Chinese. What a super celebration!
