Last week we told the children the Chinese story about the animal race that explains the order of the Chinese years. On the 10th of February it will be the start of the year of the snake. We were lucky enough to have Kam visiting. She took a mini calligraphy workshop in which the children learned how to write people and mountain in Chinese characters. The children also made snakes, created pictures of cherry blossoms and joined Reception’s dragon parade on Friday.
