Chinese New Year

On Monday we celebrated Chinese New Year. We heard the story of how the years got their names and how people celebrate. We watched a lion dance and a dragon dance and then pretended that we were dragons doing a dragon dance. We thought the people doing the dances were very clever as they did lots of tricks while dancing.

We then heard that part of the celebrations involve eating special food. Noodles are often served so we cooked some in the staff room and then ate them. Some people liked them and others didn’t, but we did all agree that we had fun learning about Chinese New Year celebrations.
