Over the last 2 weeks we have learnt how people like to prepare for the celebration of Chinese New Year and we have watched the great animal race. This week we are going to learn a little bit more about how people celebrate Chinese New Year.
Please watch the video below.
For your dragon model you could use cardboard tubes and boxes, playdough, construction toys or natural materials like leaves and pebbles. Maybe you could draw a picture or take a photo of your dragon model.
In the video we saw the little girl Abbey giving her mummy a good luck message. Did you notice it wasn't like our writing? Abbey had used Chinese characters, it's very different to how we write.
Have a go and see if you can do some Chinese characters.
You might like to have a go at writing numbers in Chinese or the animal names from the great race.
