Happy Chinese New Year!
Many of us visited China town in Liverpool city centre and we listened as our friends recounted their experiences and some even brought in photographs and souvenirs from home. We made a huge Chinese lion using cardboard boxes, paint and collage materials and looped and folded card to make colourful Chinese dragons.
Our celebrations came to an exciting end when we spent the day with our friend, Fen Fen Huang. Fen Fen told us the story of the 'great race' and we understood why the years were named after different animals. We loved discovering that some of us were born in the year of the ox and others in the year of the rat!
Fen Fen performed a Chinese fan dance to us then she invited us to learn a Chinese ribbon dance. We watched each other perform our dance to Chinese music. We then learnt how to say some traditional greetings in Mandarin and sang a 'New Year' song together.
Maths on a Mat!
We started 2014 with a big surprise...our parents' association, 'Friends of Emmaus' have bought 5 brand new ipads especially for the Reception children. We are delighted and can't wait to start using them! We would all like to say THANK YOU to all the parents and children who have helped raise funds for 'Friends of Emmaus' in 2013, everyone in Reception is very grateful.
