This week in Squiggle we are going to be the animals from the story of

The Chinese New Year


So put on your favourite music and get ready to boogie. 


Remember each time we Squiggle we do the dance moves then we use pens on paper or whiteboards.


So here are some moves for this week... 


1 – rat… fast feet

2 - ox … stompy feet, knees up

3 – tiger… large prowling hand movements

4 – rabbit… bend knees and jump up

5 – dragon… arm out and flap large wings up and down

6 – snake… slithering motion with body and arms out together in front

7 – horse… gallop – start stow and get faster

8 – goat… large circles like curly horns

9 – monkey… monkey moves

10 – rooster… hands on hips and flap little wings

11 – dog… flappy ears – hand movements

12 – pig… spiral hands out to side with pointy fingers for curly tail


Can you think of better actions than these?

Create your own  

You could do them using your strips of fabric from last week’s squiggle if you like.


Remember it is all about big movements, using all of your body.


Now you have Wiggled it is time to Squiggle.


Remember to hold your pen with your best grip

Now you have Wiggled it is time to Squiggle.

As we squiggle this week we are going to focus on letter formation,

remember to take a look at the letter formation videos to help you.


Today we are going to practise 







We practice the letters grouped this way as they have similar formation

which makes it easier to remember, learn and embed.
