Chinese New Year - Year of The Pig
Chinese New Year was the 5th February and Class 1 have had lots of fun and have learnt a lot about it! We have watched videos about what they do to prepare for New Year, such as cleaning the house to get rid of the bad and welcome the New Year, and putting up decorations. We learnt lots about their culture, such as their lucky colour is red and their lucky numbers are 8 and 9. We have created our own Chinese fans and lanterns to symbolise the brightness of Spring. We have even been practicing writing our numbers in Mandarin. Take a look at our photos!
