We have been learning all about Chinese New Year which, this year, is on Saturday 28th January. We learned about dragons being kind and helpful creatures that bring good luck. We made an enormous dragon using red and gold which are lucky colours. Our cylinder dragons were able to breath fire in our dragon dance.
In Maths, we used the threading beads to create repeating patterns for the dragons. We also counted the golden coins that we put into our lucky red bags. One of our sounds this week was ‘ch’ which is the start of China and Chinese. We used lots of our phonics skills when we wrote about our own dragons.
Barnaby Bear is off to visit the Chinese New Year celebrations this weekend. We can’t wait to read his diary entry next week.
