Room 17 celebrates Chinese New Year!
Room 17 had a fun week celebrating Chinese New Year. At the start of the week we learned all about the celebration. We heard the story of why the years are named after animals, watched the Lion Dance, and sang some songs – including Happy New Year in Chinese! At Music, we watched some Chinese drummers and played along on our own drums and cymbals as we watched. We even went to the Chinese Restaurant in Aberdeen Market for our morning snack on bus day and tried lots of different Chinese foods. We also had a pretend Chinese Takeaway through the week which turned into the real thing on Friday at snacktime – complete with fortune cookies! A great time was had by all!!!
