Today we had a visit from some teachers all the way from Shanghai in China. They talked to us about the Chinese calendar and the animals associated with each year. This year is the year of the Monkey! We explored the different characteristics of each animal and how we might share these if we were born in that year. As it is the year of the Monkey, the children got to create their own monkey faces. These will go on a display in school. Then came the tricky part, we were shown how to make a monkey using origami. It was difficult but we all managed with a little bit of help. Great job Year 1!
