Chinese New Year

28th January 2017

We have been learning about the Chinese New Year across the school. Foundation made a large Chinese dragon and decided to dance down and scare Mr Stroud! They did such a good job that he hid under his desk! In key stage one lots of learning happened about the traditional story of "The Great Race of animals",which decided how the years were named and how it is the year of the Rooster this year.

In key stage two, children read and answered comprehensions about the Chinese New Year and made beautiful lanterns to celebrate. One year six child prepared a presentation about the Chinese New Year from his experience. It was lovely that he was able to share this across the key stage, as well as some yummy Chinese food!
