Chinese New Year Celebrations
Happy Chinese New Year Everyone!
We hope you're having a fantastic one!
On Friday Team 8 was lucky enough to have Jeremy's parents share with us some of the traditions they celebrate in their family during this special time. First they showed us a powerpoint and talked about the special things they do.
Team 8. Can you remember any of the things Chinese people like to do on New Years Eve or New Years day? (comment below with the things you can remember to move your peg!)
After that, Yvonne (Jeremy's Mummy) surprised us with some traditional Chinese food! Most of us gave it a try. Mrs Turner thought it was delicious. Mmmmmmmmmm! Thank you Yvonne!
Mrs Turner (on the behalf of Mrs Grant and herself) also gave out some red envelopes to wish everyone health, wealth and happiness for the New Year.
A very special thanks to Yvonne and Austin for the powerpoint and food, and also to Bingqing (Paul's Mummy) for supporting and helping make this day happen! Team 8 is very lucky to have parents like you as part of our learning community.
