Chinese Writing

Throughout the day we have been learning about Chinese New Year and how this is a special celebration for some families across the world.  We have looked at our globe to see where we live and also where China is and we talked about how we long it might take us to get there in an aeroplane!   In PE we had a simplified version of the story behind Chinese New Year and learned about the twelve different animals that each year is named after.  We then moved in different ways like some of the animals.

This afternoon, we looked at some Chinese writing and noticed that it looks quite different to ours.  We talked about some of the colours that are considered lucky and we had a go at copying some of the Chinese script.

Tomorrow, we are making our own vegetable spring rolls to take home.
