Chinese New Year

Today Year F celebrated Chinese New Year.
They learnt about how it is celebrated and listened to the story of how the Chinese years are named.
 
They enjoyed completing activities linked to the celebration, including re-enacting the story using small world animals, writing Chinese numerals, putting money in the red envelopes to give to their friends, using chopsticks, writing cards and making paper chain Chinese dragons.
Did you know that red is considered a lucky colour in the celebration of the Chinese New Year?
