Chinese New Year

The Caterpillars and Pegasus have had a wonderful afternoon full of activities to celebrate Chinese New Year. We made money envelopes, Chinese drums, paper dragons,  lanterns and painted fireworks. We all read the story behind Chinese New Year and will be using this as a focus in our maths lessons (ordinal numbers).   The Caterpillars will also be answering questions about this in our reading session on Friday.
