Reception Chinese New Year

Feb 14, 2024Early Years, Latest News, Religious Education

Reception had a wonderful time learning about and celebrating the Lunar Chinese New Year. We learned about how other children in Chinese culture prepare for and celebrate Chinese New Year. We learned about the symbolism of the Dragon, created our own drum beats to accompany a dragon dance, and then made our own dragons too. We made lanterns, and learned that red represents good luck. We ended the week by sampling some Chinese foods which we all agreed were very nice!
