Today Class 5 told us all about Chinese New Year. We learnt how the Chinese New Year is celebrated on a different day to the New Year that we celebrate in the UK. Can you remember why? We also learnt about some of the traditions that people do before they celebrate Chinese New Year. Houses are cleaned and bad spirits swept away, children are also given red envelopes - can you remember what was inside them?
Mr Harries introduced us to all the animals that make up such a big part of the New Year celebration and then told us the story of how they raced to be the first to reach the Emperor so that they could be his guard. Can you remember who came first?
To finish off the assembly Class 5 sang a song all about the Chinese New Year.
Well done Class 5! What a brilliant assembly! You all spoke, sang and acted brilliantly!
