Chinese New Year

28th January 2020

To celebrate this Chinese Year of the Rat, Form 1 learned about some of the traditions, stories and dances involved in marking the occasion and then had a Chinese themed celebratory feast.
We discovered which Chinese Zodiac sign matched our birthdays and read a story about how the different animals got their place in the Chinese calendar. We enjoyed watching videos of the Dragon and Lion dances that mark the ceremony, along with firework displays and music while we had our mini feast.
