Learning about Chinese New Year.

We have been very busy in Reception learning about different cultures. We have been looking at the country China and the celebration of Chinese New Year.

We have done and made many things such as lanterns, stir fry and even a dragon! We had a go at writing ‘Happy New Year’ in Chinese characters. We also made some red envelopes which are traditionally given to children on New Years Day. We had to follow a lot of instructions and then we put some money (pretend) in them!

We enjoyed learning about some Chinese instruments including the dizi, pipa, sheng and the bolang gu. We made our own bolang gu drum and played it with some Chinese music.
