Mrs O’Brien came in to talk to all the boys and girls about her visit to China. She brought in some miniature terracotta warriors to show us, a beautiful jewellery box and a lovely miniature costume. She taught us that red is a very important colour in China, and the Emperor only likes people to wear red for really important occasions – like weddings.
Mrs O’Brien showed us pictures of the Great Wall of China. Did you know that the Great Wall is visible from Space! Wow…. She also showed us a picture of all the bicycles that the Chinese people love to use. The Chinese people cycle everywhere. We wonder do their schools have many Green Flags with all that cycling!
Thanks Mrs O’Brien – we loved hearing about China!
