The Chinese New Year 2016

Today  we learnt all about The Chinese New Year. We learnt new phrases in Mandarin. We learnt that this year is the Year of The Monkey. We watched a video on Ceebeebies all about two children who celebrate The Chinese New Year. We also cooked and ate chowmein. We tried eating with chop sticks! It was tricky but lots of fun. 

This week we will also be making Chinese lanterns, dragon masks and having a go at painting Chinese number and letter characters.
