This week we have been reading the story ‘Lanterns and Firecrackers’. We have explored the story as a group and linked our resources to make it more sensory. We then used instruments and a dragon to practise a dragon dance around our classroom. Next we used the zodiac chart to find out everyone’s animal from their birth years and to find out that 2020 is the year of the rat.
The children have decorated some beautiful lanterns that are now on display in our classroom and also designed craft fireworks and hand print dragons. Later in the week, we will be tasting some Chinese foods and looking at how different our cutlery is to chop sticks.
