The patterns turned out pretty much identical.
To assess knowledge and understanding of Chinese new year, I got the girls to write acrostic poems. We brain stormed vocab. associated with China/ Chinese new year and then wrote the poems.Imogen then wanted to write her own poem. Later the girls spotted an acrostic poem where the vertical word was in the middle of the poem, so maybe we'll try that next.

We began with a comprehension excercise to find out facts about chinese new year, the girls then did independent research on the internet. Together we made chinese food and wrote fortune messages. Jemima found chinese music on you tube and Imogen read to us about Chinese religions.
