Chinese New Year
On Tuesday 26th January Westfield took part in creating Chinese lanterns and decorations in time for the new Chinese New Year.
In year 3 and 4 the children’s topic is “The Great Dividing Wall” which is heavily linked to China and so was a great way to enhance their learning around the topic.
During the activity the children had to be perform extremely accurate folds and cuts to create a high quality lantern and decoration. The children enjoyed making them so much they wanted to take them home before we even finished!
Later in the week the children completed the lanterns with sequins and tissue paper to embellish the look of their lantern.
