In Nursery and Reception, the children devoured traditional Chinese foods like noodles, pot stickers and egg rolls. Yum! Meanwhile, Year 1 created Chinese dragon puppets and showcased their designs in a parade. Dragons are an essential symbol of Chinese culture, representing power and strength. Students in Year 5 and 7 also got crafty, painting the beautiful cherry blossom trees that grow in regions of China near the sea. Year 2 discovered the Chinese Zodiac and identified the animal that represents their birth year, while Year 8 students learned how to use the Chinese multiplication method. Check out photos of all these activities above!
