Chinese New Year

Reception class have been celebrating Chinese New Year.
We had our own Chinese restaurant set up in the classroom and enjoyed working as chefs and waitresses as well as being customers. We prepared the vegetables and had our own Chinese banquet in class! We have enjoyed reading the story 'The Great Race' which was all about the Chinese Zodiac animals, then retelling the story using toy animals. We have made Chinese drums, dragon masks, money wallets for good luck and even had a go at writing our names in Chinese/Mandarin!
