Today we celebrated Chinese New Year at school.
Gung Hay Fat Choy to everyone.
As part of our preparations, we tried our hand at creating a Chinese symbol.
This looked like something that was within the realm of our possible - and the meaning was perfect - harmonious living.
We can all do with a little harmonious living!
First we practiced on scrap paper.
Then we got out good luck red and yellow paper and black paint and paint brushes.
The classroom was silent with the sounds of concentration and focus while they were painting.
Then it went back to the usual buzz (or dull roar).
One of my little artists was so taken with her black painting, she found some big paper and painted her home, and her entire family - including pets.
