Chinese New Year

Happy Chinese New Year, everyone! Welcome to the Year of the Dog! Yesterday, the Land of Dreams had a special visit from Veronica. She told us the story of Nian and spoke about how her family celebrate the holiday. Veronica told us that to celebrate Chinese New Year she has a meal with her family and wears red.


Asha asked the question: Why are there dragon puppets at Chinese New Year celebrations? Veronica told us that they represent the Emperor and the Royal family. The dragon is a very important symbol during the celebrations.

Thank you Veronica for talking to us about this special day!

It's time for an update! We'd love to share with you how the testing of our bobsleds went today. Please enjoy our photos below.

Winter Olympics Design Challenge!

This week 1/2 have been learning all about the 2018 Winter Olympics being held in Pyeongchang, Korea. Our students were challenged to design their own bobsled with a partner that could travel down an ice field. The student designs were inventive and creative. Take a look at what we produced below!



Please tune in again tomorrow as we share with you the testing of our bobsleds!
