Welcoming in the Chinese New Year

We celebrated the start of the Year of the Rooster by creating some amazing artwork, fantastic food and dramatic Dragon Dances.

In Year 5 Derby, the pupils had a discussion about Chinese New Year and learnt about how the celebrations began, writing their own storyboards afterwards.  They made their own lanterns and started making their own Origami roosters! 

Reception children found out what their own Chinese zodiac animals were, made lanterns and decorated biscuits.  They worked together in the afternoon to make their own dragon and paraded around the playground.  What a fantastic day!
