Dolphins - Reception

Lunar New Year - Dragon Dance

The Dolphins have been learning about the Lunar New Year/Chinese New Year celebrations! We have learnt about the story of the Chinese Zodiac, how people celebrate the Lunar New Year, tried using chopsticks, learnt how to write the numbers 1-10 in Chinese, and created our own dragon puppets inspired by the incredible dancers in China.
Here are two girls who worked together to create their puppet and wanted to perform their very own dragon dance for the class! They did it without music first and then decided they needed music to make it more authentic... we watched both as a class and learnt about 'tempo' - how fast or slow music goes!
