20.02.18 Chinese New Year

This week our learning has been focused around The Chinese New Year. 
We have had a busy couple of days! We have started to explore the festival of The Chinese New Year. We have found out where China is on a map and looked at pictures of the country, comparing the photos to our local area. We explored the story of 'The Race' and found out what animals had a year named after them. We even reenacted the story. We found out that this year it is the year of the dog. Following this we created a class collage of a dog for our display board. Mrs Evans didn't have any brown paint so the children had to explore mixing different colours together to create brown. We have been using the I-pads to sequence numbers on a dragon game.
