Nursery - Chinese New Year
In Nursery we have been learning all about Chinese New Year. We listened to the story of why Chinese New Year is celebrated and had lots of fun wearing animal masks and exploring moving in different ways whilst racing each other.
We watched a Chinese family preparing for the festival. We then watched a dragon dance and enjoyed painting our own Chinese dragons.
We looked at where the United Kingdom was on world map and then found China. We thought about how we might travel there and looked at the difference in size of both countries.
We looked at some Chinese writing and tried really hard to copy some of the Chinese symbols to represent numbers.
We made our own Chinese dragons using unifix blocks and played a game to see who could make the longest dragon in one minute!
As part of Chinese New Year the children enjoyed tasting traditional Chinese food.
