Gong hei fat choy! We marked the Chinese Year of the Pig, the lunar new year with a festive week where the children learned about the different ways of celebrating. We compared them with our own festivities and also took the opportunity to produce some very creative pieces including masks, blossom scroll paintings, lanterns and even a dragon dance! The children sampled some food including fortune cookies and had a go at using chopsticks, great for our motor skills. We learned about pandas and even built some shelters for our own using bamboo construction pieces.
What a busy week!
