恭喜恭喜 Gong Xi Going Xi!

In today's kindy class we learnt all about Chinese new year. We started off with story of 年 "Nian" monster and why people are wearing red and decorating their homes with Red colour. We took turn to have lion dance and make our own lion dance puppet!

The key phrases today are:

新年 Xīnnián - New Year
红色 Hóngsè - Red colour 
恭喜 (Gōngxǐ) - congratulations
不喜欢 (Bù xǐhuān) do not like
舞狮 (Wǔ shī) - lion dance
很饿, 吃什么? Hěn È Chī shénme? - very hungry, what to eat?

And here is the song we were al singing today:

 Gōngxǐ  gōngxǐ gōngxǐ  nǐ   ya
 Gōngxǐ gōngxǐ gōngxǐ   nǐ
