Around the World - China

We are on the move again - this week to China, to celebrate Chinese New Year! We learnt the story of Nian and the 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac. Now we know what this year's animal is - why don't you ask us! Then we made paper dragons, red lanterns and fireworks in a jar. Outside, we learnt how to write Chinese numerals from one to ten and used them to play hopscotch. We took our dragon masks and long scarves into PE to do beautiful dragon dancing to a special song - it was so good, we let Mrs O'Brien watch and she was very impressed!
