Chinese New Year 3/02/20
On Saturday 25th January, pupils across the School celebrated the Year of the Rat for Chinese New Year. This is a Chinese festival that celebrates the beginning of a new year on the traditional Chinese calendar. Last week, the children ignited the day with their vibrant paper laterns, decorated with an assortment of coloured tissue paper, each made with their own creative design. They also learnt about the Chinese zodiac and analysed the lines of different Chinese characters, words for various animals and numbers from 1 to 10, sprinkling glitter and spreading sparkle, as they continued the celebrations with enthusiasm and contentment.
