Today is Safer Internet Day! To find out more information, please see Mrs Goodwin’s update on Tapestry. 


Hanging lanterns is a popular tradition that happens in Chinese New Year! Not only do their bright colours decorate people's houses, lanterns are also said to be lucky charms that keep away the Nian monster. According to legend the Nian monster is a fierce beast with sharp teeth and horns! 



We are going to following instructions to make our very own Chinese New Year Lantern :)! We will be thinking carefully about how the instructional language helps us to complete the task.


You can follow along with Miss Parish in the video below and make a lantern as she does (you may need to pause it every now and again).

Or you can print off the instructions attached below and make one with your Mummy, Daddy, sibling or adult helper.

Items you will need:

* One piece of A4 colour card/paper

* Scissors

* Celotape

* Glue

* Ribbon

* Glitter

* Sequins
