This week in China class we’ve been learning all about Chinese New Year at home and in school. In keeping with Chinese tradition we have made a wishing tree. Chinese custom is that people write their wishes then attach them to a piece of fruit on a string, which is then thrown up into a wishing tree. If the wish sticks on the tree it may come true! The children works hard on their writing and the tree looks great. What would you wish for?
We also really enjoyed trying some Chinese foods – noodles, prawn crackers, egg fried rice and dumplings. The children really loved the noodles and prawn crackers and whilst the dumplings weren’t that popular we were really proud of them for trying something new.
We also made dragons, lucky money envelopes and did some dances with our dragons to Chinese music!
