🧧 Chinese new year - Dragon/lion Dance 🧧

In our expressive arts and design lesson, we have been learning how to Dragon/Lion dance.
These dances are traditional Chinese festival dances.

The lion dance is performed to bring prosperity, happiness and

good luck for the upcoming year. 

The dragon dance is performed during the festive occasions as a means to

chase away the evil spirits and to welcome in a prosperous new year.

Ice ornaments

We talked about what the children thought would happen to the water if we left it outside on the cold. The children thought it would freeze because it was really cold.

🎨 Ice Painting 🎨

Today, we have been painting with ice. 
Mrs Bamforth froze paint overnight for us to paint with.
When the paint ice melts it leaves paint on our paper.

This was so fun. We made our own pictures and one all together in the big tuff tray. 
We explored different colours, textures and we talked about what happens to water when it freezes and melts.  


We can’t wait to see how our pictures turn out.

❄️ Winter fun ❄️
Today we went outside even though it was chilly. We wrapped up warm and wore our hats. 
We played with the bears in the snow, painted with snow paint (white paint with glitter in), played in the sand tray and practiced putting on scarves and gloves.

We had so much fun 😁
