Kung Hei Fat Choi

Happy New Year!
The children in Maple and Acorn Classes have been learning all about Chinese New Year.
In red base we made our own Chinese lanterns, which really helped us develop our cutting skills. 
We made fans, which we had to fold carefully.

We created our own traditional wishing tree. We wrote what we wished for on red paper and then threw our orange and red paper on to the tree.

We explored Chinese writing and used printing materials to recreate our own.

We practised using chop sticks in preparation for our visit to the Chinese restaurant.

The children also looked at traditional lion dancing, they used fans, parasols and musical instruments to create their own version of the dance.
