Y6 have been learning about the significance of Chinese New Year. They learnt about some of the traditions and how it is celebrated across the world. Dragons are used in dance to show power and to chase away evil spirits and bad luck. In their art lesson, the children recreated their own dragon faces and thought about which colours were significant. (Red is considered a very lucky colour to the Chinese as it symbolises good fortune and joy). 

Y6 Chinese Dragons!
