Welcome to Room 10's blog for 2017. We are an amazing Year 0/1 class and our teacher is Mrs Burge. We are looking forward to working together and learning lots of exciting and new things this year! Check our blog regularly to see what we have been up to. We would love to read your comments.
On Thursday a parent gave Mrs Turner a Lion costume to bring to school.
We talked about the Chinese New Year and how people celebrate it.
We learnt that people give gifts of money in red envelopes. The red envelope is for good luck.
We learnt that lanterns are lit and displayed.
We learnt that people do a Lion Dance and the lion follows a gold ball. This is to scare away the evil spirits and bad luck for the year.
Then we had a look at a Lion Dance and listened to the music.
We took turns to try on the Lion costume and do our own Lion Dance to the music.
It was lots of fun.
Then we made Lanterns in the classroom.
We were very clever as it was a bit tricky to cut up to nearly the top of the lantern and then fold it over and staple on the handles.
