Happy Chinese New Year! 

To celebrate the Chinese new year today we had Chinese themed activities. We learnt about why Chinese New Year was special to people in China. Finding out about how Chinese people cleaned their houses in preparation for the celebrations, how they had red envelopes with money in and watched special parades where dragons danced. 

We also learnt about the different animals and their story of why each year is named after an animal. We learnt some of us were Rabbits and some were Tigers. Miss Irwin is a Rooster! 

There were messy noodles outside to explore. Anybody fancy a take away?   
 We had Chinese smelling playdoh.  
 Used our cutting and sticking skills to create our own monkeys.  
Some of us wrote Happy Chinese New Year Cards to our families.        
In the afternoon we tried Chinese noodles, some of us even used chopsticks! 

 Then we tried fortune cookies. 

Some of us liked them some of us didn’t!

Finally we made our very own Chinese lanterns.
