We had our Y6 did the Bowl Dancing workshop this week. The bowl dance is from Inner Mongolia ethnic minority nation. It is a way of welcome guest. The dancers put a bowl or some bowls on their heads and dance. It is a bit tricky to dance in this way as the dancers’ heads should remain still but shake their shoulders. They can also spin. Wow.
Our children had some time to practise to keep a cup on their heads and walk and spin. Some of them could even shake their shoulders. Well done for trying very hard.
Our Y6 had a workshop to make Jigsaws. They made the pattern of some Chinese characters including Happy New Year in Mandarin. After they made this pattern, they pasted all the jigsaw pieces on a piece of paper and revealed the other side of the jigsaw pieces. Let’s see what they got.
Here are some video clicks that we found online. Here are Chinese zodiac story and Nian story.
Xin Nian Hao (Happy New Year) to everybody. We wish you a great Year of the Dog.
It was so lovely that we celebrated Chinese New Year at Rosendale Primary School yesterday. Our children from Y5 and Y6 presented a great assembly.
Here is the song at the end of the assembly. The children performed so well.
Thank you Ms Brown for dressing up the Chinese lucky colour for Chinese New Year celebration.
Thank you Amy for bringing many pretty Chinese shoes and sharing them to other girls.
