Chinese New year!
Today in Wise owls we had a great time learning about Chinese New Year and how this year its the year of the roster. The children showed an interest in Chinese dragons so we decided to have a go a painting are own. The children had a choice of four dragons to look at and then decide which one they wanted to paint. The children were very excited about how colourful the dragons were and to learn that to celebrate new year the Chinese people use the dragons in festivals and they dance under them. The children used lots of bright paints to make their dragons and where very happy to see them being displayed on the wall.
To continue learning about Chines New year we are going to try and copy some of the Chinese letters and try some yummy foods!
