As part of Chinese New Year we looked at and performed our own Dragon Dances.
This week the children found out about how people celebrate Chinese New Year. We listened to the story of the animal race and found out it is the year of the rat! We also looked at a Willow Pattern story plate and read the story told by the pictures on it. We then design our own story plates and write our stories. We also tried some Chinese food - we loved the prawn crackers but not so much the noodles!
