Chinese New Year

In assembly on Friday we celebrated Chinese New Year

In assembly on Friday we celebrated Chinese New Year. We learned about the Chinese calendar and found out that this year is the ‘Year of the Rat’ and we learned how to make the Maakton sign for ‘rat’. Everyone then enjoyed playing some Chinese celebration music using gongs, chime bars and percussion instruments. We all said ‘kung hei fat choy’ to each other – which means ‘wishing you happiness and prosperity in the coming year’ and we watched an amazing dragon dance as part of the celebrations.
