Primary One has enjoyed looking at Chinese New Year as part of our RME this week. We learned that there are twelve animals in the zodiac calendar and that this year is the ‘Year of the Dog’. We also discovered that the children born in 2012 are in the year of the dragon.
The pupils thought the parades, fireworks and lanterns looked beautiful. They also fancied the idea of receiving money in a red envelope. We know that the colour red represents good luck and gold represents wealth. We all want to try some of the delicious dumplings that families enjoy!
Next week, we hope to create our own Chinese lanterns!
