Lunar New Year

2023 is the Year of the Rabbit and we have been learning about how families celebrate the Lunar New Year. We listened to the story of how each year became named after an animal. After watching some traditional dragon and lion dances we had a chance to perform our own dragon dance. We took it in turns to dance as part of the dragon and then to accompany the dragon on the drums. This tied into this term’s work in music, which has been about keeping a steady beat. We made our own dragon puppets, where we learnt to fold the paper in a concertina style to give it movement and we also made rabbit sun catchers which we hope you have enjoyed seeing on our classroom windows.
