We learned about the Chines New Year. We were particularly interested in the Dragon Dancing Parade. We wanted to make a dragon head to dance with.
We painted two big boxes with brightly coloured paint and decorated them with hand shapes and feathers. We added eyes and teeth.
We tried dancing in a line in the hall following a leader to music. Our dragon went up and down and round and round.
On Friday we went out onto the playground and danced with our dragons in our family groups. We watched each other and played our own music on percussion instruments. In the line we waved our scarves and followed the dragon head wherever it went.
Gung Hai Fat Choy!
