We'll be celebrating the Year of the Monkey in February for our school's Chinese New Year celebrations.
Although the official Chinese New Year date is February 8th, we'll be celebrating this on different days, with the main event for Mosspits, on Tuesday February 9th.
In EYFS, they have set up a Chinese restaurant in the role-play area and they will be learning about Chinese culture, music and tradition.
Dance workshops have been organised for EYFS and Y2 with a Chinese dragon dance theme, on February 1st.
We have a range of creative, enrichment activities planned for our main day of celebration on February 9th. In particular, we welcome members of the Liverpool Confucius Institute into school who will provide a Tai Chi presentation to Years 3 - 6 and workshops for EYFS and Y2. This will include Chinese art (paper-cutting), language activities and Tai Chi.
If any of families from Liverpool's Chinese community would like to be involved in our celebrations, please contact school; we would love to hear from you.
Finally, we have been very fortunate that our Year 1 classes have been invited by the Confucius Institute to attend one of their prestigious shows at the Everyman Theatre, to welcome the Year of the Monkey with a professional Chinese troupe and local schools performing kung-fu, dance, drama, physical theatre and spoken word. It promises to 'bring colour, traditions and atmosphere of the Spring Festival!'
