Happy New Year Chinese Style


Welcome to the Year of the Rat.



We heard the story of how the animals had a race across the river. The Emperor named the years after each of the first 12 animals to finish. We used this game to order the animals correctly.


We have been celebrating Chinese New Year with a party. We enjoyed trying new food kindly provided by a KS2 parent, including green pancakes! Yum!

We watched some examples of ‘Lion Dancing’ which is used as part of celebrations in the Chinese culture.
