Chinese New Year
1G’s class assembly allowed them to shine their light to all of the St James family. The amazing entrance into the hall allowed everybody to see the enthusiasm. They shared lots of information about the Year of the Rat and its importance to all those celebrating. 1G explained how many people celebrate and how they gather together with lots of food, fireworks and lanterns. They acted out the race of the animals to show the order which lead to the formation of the Lunar calendar. A song was performed to the music of Frere Jacques called The Chinese New Year song. Just by listening to the words, they created the actions to match. Overall, it was a great celebration of a festival that some of our family were going to celebrate. We hope everybody enjoyed celebrating Chinese New Year.
