Ms Quinn’s 2nd class enjoyed learning about Chinese New Year this week. They were very interested in learning about Chinese traditions for this celebration that lasts for 15 days.
They made some lovely Chinese lanterns and decorated them with pictures and beads. The boys listened to old Chinese stories about Nian the monster and drew some Chinese dragons. They looked at photographs from China which included the Great Wall of China and the Terracotta Army.
Anna brought in some interesting objects to show us which included; a Chinese calligraphy set, chopsticks and a rice bowl, a red envelope for money, a Chinese book and some money.
Check out the pictures below to see some of the lovely action and art, and Chinese decorations…
