What we did in Term 4...

During multicultural week we learnt all about China. We made Chinese dragons and used them to perform a dragon dance.

We used tissue paper and glue to create beautiful Chinese blossom pictures.

We had fun creating  artwork inspired by Chinese watercolour flower paintings.
