Burravoe Primary School

Chinese Year of The Monkey


These past few weeks we have been learning Mandarin Chinese with Mrs. Zhang. As well as learning Mandarin Chinese we have been learning about China. 2 weeks ago we made Chinese Zodiacs……………Zodiacs are a Chinese way of telling how old you are and telling what time it is. Last week we made Chinese lanterns but we didn’t put lights in them because we just made them out of paper. On the top of the lanterns we wrote in Mandarin Chinese, it translated to Happy New Year. Yesterday we learned about Chinese New Year. We saw lots of AMAZING! pictures of Chinese lanterns and a great video of a dragon. Also yesterday we made Chinese dumplings.
