Chinese Y7 Taster Lessons - Bejing Opera Masks

Over the past few weeks, Year 7 classes at Tomlinscote have had the opportunity to participate in taster Chinese classes. Apart from learning some basic language, they also found out about Chinese culture, for example about the Bejing Opera Masks:

Then they were allowed to make their own masks. 
Here is a selection of their best work!  It is very obvious that the children put a lot of effort in their masks! Well done!

These are the best masks from 7Q
