Chinese New Year

On Wednesday 14th February, Key Stage one went into the hall to celebrate Chinese New Year with a variety of activities.

The children were put into groups and moved around the hall to complete these activities:

•    Chinese writing.
•    Chinese number writing.
•    Eating rice with chopsticks – this was a tricky task!
•    Maths challenge.
•    Chinese codebreaker.
•    Mindfulness colouring.


In the afternoon we watched video clips of dragon and lion dances that take place during Chinese New Year Parades. In groups, the children then had a go at working together to create a lion dance using materials. It was lots of fun!
To end our day we sang the song Gung Hay Fat Choy which is a song about Chinese New Year wishing you good fortune and happiness.


Everyone in Key Stage One had a great day and we all made lots of memories.
