Chinese New Year

On Sunday it is the start of the Year of the Snake in the Chinese calendar.  Today we read about Chinese New Year and celebrated by making colourful paper lanterns and scary dragon puppets.   We used our scissor skills to cut out the lanterns and the dragons and we learnt how to fold paper like a fan to make the bodies of our dragons.  We loved how we could use the sticks to make our dragons weave and wriggle.   Don't they look amazing?


  1. Hi there B4 Explorers,
    I was lucky enough to have a look around your classroom last night with your teacher Mrs Harrington and I must say I was really impressed with the artwork you have been creating and have on display, some great work being done and the choice of colours was very impressive. Keep up the great work

    Kind regards Harrison's Dad

  2. Hullo B4, I know you have been a wonderful class how are you doing today? I think you would be great for your next years teacher. from Holly R
