Chinese New Year

Dear Parents/ Carers


On Friday 9th February, we will be holding a cultural carnival day in school to celebrate Chinese New Year. 2024 is the year of the dragon. To celebrate this, we would like to invite the children to come into school dressed in red or gold (the colours which are considered to bring luck and success in Chinese culture) or dressed as a dragon (perhaps wear clothes which have a dragon motif).


During the day, the children will be learning all about Chinese New Year, taking part in a wide range of activities. Some of these activities may include Chinese dragon dancing, making dragon masks and Chinese lanterns, making fortune cookies and writing using Chinese characters.


At the end of the day, the work which the children have created, will be on display in the assembly hall and we would like to invite parents into school (from 3:20 – 3:45pm) to have a look at some of the fabulous work which we know the children will produce. We ask parents to collect their children as normal then, once all children have been collected, parents can enter school via the school gate, proceed to our gallery in the assembly hall and, after viewing the children’s wonderful work, depart school and exit via the school gate.


Thank you in advance for all your support.
