Chinese New Year at Priors Field
On Friday 25th January, we have celebrated one of the most important holidays in China, the Chinese New Year. Children have learnt that the Chinese New Year of 2019 falls on February 5th, and the festival will last to February 19th, about 15 days in total. 2019 is a Year of the Pig according to Chinese zodiac. Children have enjoyed an assembly on Chinese New Year and learnt about how Chinese people celebrate their special day. Thank you for Chinese families to share some artefacts and beautiful costumes. During the day children have learnt Chinese Mandarin greetings, family members and count to 10. Each class has designed a spectacular Chinese dragon. We ended the day of the day with a special Chinese dragon dance assembly where each dragon had an opportunity to demonstrate it's 'moves'.
