Celebrating the Chinese New Year!

Celebrating the Chinese New Year!

This week we celebrated the Chinese New Year in our assembly. This year is the year of the rooster. We found out that there are 12 animals in the Chinese zodiac and all worked out which animal year we were born in. We held a parade of the zodiac animals and learnt the Makaton signs for each one. We had a Chinese feast of noodles, prawn crackers and different sauces which we ate with chopsticks. It was a bit messy! Then a Chinese dragon performed a special dance for us and we sang a dragon dance song.
