Y6 Celebrate the Chinese New Year

The Y6 students have been reimagining their recycling as animal masks for Chinese New Year celebrations. Before starting to design their masks, the children researched the traditional characteristics which are attributed to each of the zodiac animals, then they each chose the animal that they felt most represented them. To decide on the colour palette for their mask, the students looked back at the colours used in medieval Heraldry to learn about the significance of certain colours, and at a wide range of masks through the ages from Pre-Columbian to modern masks from around the world.
