Celebrating Chinese New Year in Room 11

Room 11 were learning about the amazing celebration of Chinese New Year. We learned about how they celebrate the occasion which includes a Dragon dance where people dress up in masks and costumes and do really cool dances. To celebrate, we made our own Dragon dance masks!

Movement in Room 11

Room 11 were practicing dance in PE. We looked at the different ways that we could travel and the different levels we could make new moves at.

It was great!

Learning about gender stereotyping

Room 11 were learning about gender stereotyping, and RTE News2Day came into our class to find out what we thought! Gender stereotyping is when some people think that certain characteristics or jobs belong only to boys or girls. We loved learning about how the filming, editing and producing happens.

Have a watch to see what we think!
