Happy Chinese New Year
At Barnes Farm Infant school, we have been learning how Chinese New Year is celebrated. The children have been learning about different Chinese traditions and the similarities and differences between ourselves and others.
On Friday, there was a fantastic atmosphere in school. We had a visit from a dance company, who taught us Chinese dancing using colourful fans and parasols. Some of the children were even chosen to be the Chinese dragon!
On Monday, each class invited their families to take part in a variety of different activities to celebrate the new year. It was lovely to see so many families joining us.
The children have taken part in a competition to make a Chinese decoration using a range of everyday materials at home. This afternoon we will find out who had the most creative design in each year group!
