Happy Chinese New Year from Chaffinches

Chaffinches have thoroughly enjoyed learning about the Chinese New Year over the last couple of weeks.  They have learnt about how the festival is celebrated around the world and the history of its traditions.  The children have particularly enjoyed learning about the Lantern festival which is celebrated at the end of the 15 day period of festivities. They have produced some amazing artwork using the media of pastels and collage.  We have also continued our learning in our Design and Technology lessons, where we have made our own dragon sock puppets and have used them to retell the story of Nian.  The children also enjoyed developing their cutting, chopping and grating skills when they made their own delicious spring rolls.  Finally, in P.E we have also started to learn the Dragon dance.  Watch out for this dance in our Carnival celebration towards the end of the topic.

We hope that the photos and video will give you a little insight into what we have been up to.  Next celebration is Mardi Gras!
