On Monday the 8th of February, it will be Chinese new year - the year of the monkey! We got our room ready by making some Chinese decorations. The red colour is a sign of good luck, and the symbols we used mean "happiness". We did "double happiness" because we think the year of the monkey is going to be great! Then we turned the symbols and hung them upside down, because that is Chinese tradition.
We also didn't waste any paper: we had to use A4 paper to make our decorations, so we folded them into a right-angled triangle and cut off a rectangle, leaving a big square. We used the leftover rectangle to make tiny Chinese lanterns to hang on our decorations.
A record of our activities in the Resource room!
