The children in Reception have had a wonderful time celebrating the Chinese New Year, the Year of the Pig, which fell on 5th February. What a good time the children have had learning about China and its culture. They enjoyed playing in the “Hungry Pig Chinese Restaurant” and they had a great time making their own real “Stone Soup” and eating it. Some found the chopsticks a little tricky.
The children have been practising their drumming skills and made two wonderful Dragon heads for a traditional Dragon Dance through the school. It was definitely difficult not to notice them! What a welcome they received when they visited Nursery and the KS1 and KS2 classrooms. Happy New Year everyone! – or as they say in China – Gung Hay Fat Choy.
