Chinese New Year

Butterfly Class Celebrate Chinese New Year!

This week, Butterfly Class celebrated the Chinese New Year with an insightful lesson that explored its history. The class learnt about the 12 animals that make the zodiac and thoroughly enjoyed role-playing the story of the animals racing to make the final 12, before piecing together the story in picture-form in mixed groups. The children were thrilled to find out what animal their birth year meant that they were in Chinese history – we had rabbits, snakes and dragons in Butterfly Class!
