Chinese New Year

We have had a very busy week learning all about the Chinese New Year celebrations. We listened to the story of 'The Great Race' and then practiced our use of ordinal numbers, seeing which position each of the animals finished in the race. We have made dragon puppets, and a large class dragon in which we did some dragon dancing whilst our friends played Chinese music. We learnt to play a Chinese playground game called Jump House. Finally today we have made our own red envelopes, for good luck and we decorated them with real Chinese characters.
