Chinese New Year + Residential
Our fun day and a video link about the Residential
We have ended our 6 weeks since returning in the New Year with a celebration of Chinese New Year! Over the last few weeks we have studied life in the times of the Shang Dynasty, and very much enjoyed learning crazy facts. Quiz your children on their Shang facts - you'll be amazed!
As a celebration of the new lunar calendar, today we have:
- created presentations about people living under Shang rule
- made shadow puppets to tell a tale (I took a video which I will try to get on the blog soon!)
- used our collage skills to make a simple outline of a chinese dragon come to life
In addition to this, this week the children have recieved essential information about their residential trip, which is now only a month away! All the children have recieved a kit list and medical forms to be returned to me as soon as possible, please.
If you missed out on seeing the fun that our trip has to offer, here is a link to a video showing all the fun of a Kingswood residential visit.
