Chinese New Year
In Early Years we have been learning about Chinese New Year. We have learnt that Chinese New Year is celebrated on different days each year as it follows a very old lunar calandar. We have learnt that red is considered a lucky colour in China and New Year is celebrated in lots of different ways including all members of the family getting a new outfit, children finding lucky red envelopes under their pillows and sharing a banquet with family and friends. We wrote our names in Chinese, we wrote top to bottom and in symbols, we noticed how this is different to writing in English.
