Chinese New Year

As part of our Geography topic this term we have been studying Asia, with a particular focus on China, Japan and India.  On the 1st of February, it was Chinese New Year.  We learnt all about how Chinese people around the world celebrate new year, we made Chinese arts and crafts as part of our home learning project and we also made and decorated red envelopes in class.  Red envelopes are given to children on New Year's Day and are usually filled with money to wish them good luck, happiness and health for the new year.
