Chinese New Year

6th February 2019

We have been learning all about Chinese New Year.  Jay, who is an artist, came to tell us all about Chinese New Year.  We heard the story of the Great Race and learnt how to say hello, thank you and Happy New Year in Chinese.  
Kingfisher Class used ink to write Chinese characters on rice paper.  We found out that each word has its own character and if you wanted to read a book you would need to know 3000 characters!  
Puffin Class made Chinese Dragons.  They had to concertina fold the paper and colour in their dragon very very carefully.
