Happy New Year!
We had a wonderful time celebrating Chinese New Year and learning about other people’s cultures and traditions. We ate fortune cookies, served noodles in our Chinese Restaurant, and had a go at using chopsticks to move cubes to solve mathematical problems including sharing, halving and doubling. We read non-fiction books, made lanterns, learnt a song about Chinese New Year and did our own Chinese Dragon dancing. We had a special visitor come into class to tell us all about how her family celebrates the New Year, show us her special clothes and teach us how to eat marshmallows using the chopsticks! Yum!
