Happy New Year – Chinese style!

Reception classes enjoy learning about Chinese New Year

The Reception classes enjoyed a visit from Mrs Lowe, parent of Jessica in RS. She talked to the children about Chinese New Year and brought in traditional Chinese clothes for them to try on.

                                                                                                       

She also brought Chinese lanterns, red money envelopes, Chinese New Year posters and decorations. Mrs Lowe explained the story behind Chinese New Year and informed the children that 2013 is the year of the snake.

                   

                                                                                                                                     

The children were interested to find out that red is a lucky colour for Chinese people and this is why they would dress in red clothes when celebrating Chinese New Year.

                                                                                                               

A very special thank you to Mrs Lowe for coming to school – all the children really enjoyed your talk.
