February 5th 2019 was Chinese New Year. The children in both nursery classes welcomed in the year of the pig by learning the story of Chinese New Year and how the Jade Emperor asked the animals to have a race and the first twelve would have a year named after them. The children made a Chinese dragon, rattle drums and lucky red envelopes. On Wednesday 6th February everyone came to school wearing red and took part in a Chinese banquet. We were very lucky to have a friend from Year 3 come and tell us how she celebrated the New Year.
