Year 1’s Chinese New Year Celebrations
Posted: 15th February 2013 | Category: Year 1
The children in Year 1 have been celebrating Chinese New Year by learning about China. They followed Barnaby Bear to China and learnt where China is, places to visit in China and sights to see. The children enjoyed learning about Chinese food, money, writing, dragon dances and pandas.
Year 1 read the story of the Chinese Animal Race, which helped them to learn about the order of the Chinese calendar and they worked out which animal year they were born in.
As part of the celebrations, the children made red envelopes and lanterns and ate laughing dumplings, which crack when they are baked, which makes them look like they are smiling, and Mrs. Mills gave all the children a fortune cookie.
On Thursday, all the children from Kindergarten to Year 2 had a Chopstick Challenge.
Suzie dressed up in her Chinese outfit and gave out red envelopes to all the children from Kindergarten to Year 2.
The children enjoyed learning how to count to ten in Chinese. Watch them counting in the video below!:
