Celebrating Chinese New Year

We were delighted to welcome Co-opted Governor, Gordon Wong and his wife to lead a session in the Early Years Class  on Monday 9th February. The theme was ‘Chinese New Year’ and the children were so interested to hear from our visitors about this festival and the customs associated with it. They found out about the Chinese calendar, the lucky colours, and the various celebrations and traditions of the lunar festival. Some children even got the chance to try out various Chinese puppets.The children were fascinated to see a real Chinese lion mask and later in the week they made theirown and performed a dance in the hall.
