Chinese New Year

The children in Arran room have been busy celebrating Chinese New Year. They are learning that there are 12 animals in Chinese Zodiac. The children enjoyed the story about “The Three Little Pigs” told by Miss Zhou in Chinese. There has been a range of art activities such as writing, Chinese characters with a paint brush, painting facial masks of Beijing opera face painting, dressing up and doing the dragon dance, listening to traditional Chinese music, watching the lion dance on the smart board, etc. The children have also helped to prepare different types of Chinese food: crispy wantons, stir fried rice, noodles, prawn crackers and they also had fun using  chopsticks to eat their food.
