Chinese New Year (Year of the Tiger)
Chinese New Year 2022, the Year of the Tiger, will be celebrated on 1st February 2022. The Tiger is considered to be brave, cruel and forceful.
It is the symbol of power in Chinese culture.
In China, planes, trains, buses, boats, donkeys, and any means of transportation
you can imagine, are jammed packed with people returning home
to enjoy the celebrations with their friends and family.
And all over the world, wherever there is a Chinatown or a large Asian community,
the festivities are a colorful display of dragon dances, lantern festivals,
feasts, and of course firecrackers!
We created a colourful display board to celebrate Chinese New Year.
2022 is the Year of the Tiger.
We made 'Tiger' faces for our board. The bright orange and black stripes looked really colourful! We made our tigers look friendly even though they're supposed to be fierce!
We explored prawn crackers - some of use tasted some! Then we glued them onto
red card to make a sensory border for the tigers!
We explored Red and Gold on the light box ... everyone had a favourite item
but we all enjoyed how colourful everything looked.
We explored Noodles and Lychees! We explored scented red rice too!
The Chinese 5 spice mixed in with the rice made some of us sneeze!
