On Tuesday afternoon, Year 1 learnt all about Chinese New Year. We made our own dragons and Chinese lanterns

and thanks to a family in Year 1, we even experienced a real Chinese dragon!

The children had lots of fun having a go at using chopsticks and writing numbers in Chinese symbols. They also heard the story about The Great Race, linked to the Chinese Zodiac and why each year is named after a different animal. Ask your children to tell you what year it is this year!
