We have been learning about Chinese New Year this week. We have made our own Chinese dragon from a box and we all helped to make him, some of us painted his head and his tongue, some cut out eyes and some cut out and stuck on his rather fantastic golden eyebrows!
We watched a video of people doing a dragon dance and, inspired by this, we danced around with our own dragon. We took it in turns to be the head of the dragon and we got out the musical instruments and beat our drums for our dragon to dance to.
On Monday, we had our first session back in the hall at big school now that their building work is finished and so we had lots of space to run around and practice our dragon dancing.
We have also tried out marking some Chinese writing (please look at the wall display) and on some days, we have eaten prawn crackers for our snack. As well as this, we learnt how to use chopsticks which was lots of fun (though we didn't use them to eat our prawn crackers!).
