Last week we learnt about the story of the ‘Animal Race’ and how the animals were chosen to represent their own year. The children made their own dragon puppets that they enjoyed flying around the class

We also learnt about why people wear red and like to light fireworks and eat special food. The children were a bit frightened to learn about the scary Nian monster but were glad to hear that we can scare him away by making loud noises and banging the Chinese drums we have in our class room. We also decorated our own Chinese Lanterns.

This week we have made Chinese drums using paper plates and we have learnt a new song about ‘Lucky Red Envelopes’ that are called Hongbao, the children also made their own hongbao to take home to show to their families.
