This week we have been thinking about Chinese New Year celebrations. This is a special time for Nele, Sean and their families. We enjoyed learning how this is the year of the dog and listened carefully as Nele's mum told us the story of how the years were named after animals. At the writing table the children made lucky red envelopes to send messages of kindness to their friends and learnt how to write 1-10 using Chinese characters. The children made spring rolls to share with their friends and families and had great fun learning how to use chopsticks.
