Special Days From Around the World

Busy Bees have been extremely excited this term learning about ‘Special Days’ celebrated around the world.  They researched how the Chinese New Year is celebrated in different parts of China during the festive season and how 2022 is the ‘Year of the Tiger’.
We also found out that the Chinese New Year is all about happiness, health , wealth and prosperity.

Our pupils were all able to say the phrase ” Kung hoy fa choy” which means “we wish you a happy new year” in Chinese.




The students did lots of exciting activities such as making lanterns with bright colours. The lanterns had intricate symbols which are a sign of happiness and peace. Children were also able to count to 5 in Mandarin and children had a go at using Chinese chopsticks which was fun!


The most enjoyable part by far had to be learning ‘Wushu’, also known as ‘Kungfu’ which is practised throughout China. We also decided to show what they learned as part of a dragon show, which was performed for Iqra pupils and staff –  Busy Bees put together an exhilarating performance and lead a parade throughout Iqra  :- We’d love to share some pictures with you.
