There were lots of lovely things to choose from, including some adult directed activities - making spring rolls and Chinese drum making.
We used paper plates, lucky red circle paper, bells and wool and sticks for handles. We copied done Chinese writing onto the red circled paper. We added the handle and the bells and hey presto!
Mrs Harrison is a super chef and tells us how to make spring rolls. She then helps us to make some.
We enjoyed looking at and listening to stories in Mandarin.
We have enjoyed using small world animals to retell the story of the big race involving the animals which tells us how the Chinese New Year all began.
We used real rice and pretend noodles with chopsticks to find out how hard it is to pick them up!
We enjoyed making dragon masks, writing Happy Chinese New Year cards, writing in Chinese in the sand, playing with Bee bot and the Chinese cards and threading dragon cards.
We enjoyed sharing our spring rolls and other Chinese food back in class.
We've had a lovely morning celebrating! Dragon dancing tomorrow.....watch this space!
