As Chinese New Year has begun this week, Mountains 5 used this weeks foreign Cultures session to learn more about the annual festival.

Firstly they listened to some interesting facts and looked at some pictures of previous celebrations in different areas of China.

Then, as its now the year of the tiger, they made some good luck cards with tigers on the front to take home to their families.  They put the pictures onto red card as this colour is believed to bring luck and wealth to the recipient in the coming year.

Lakes 6 and 7 also celebrated Chinese New Year in dance sessions with Miss Zoe where they pretended to be animals.
