Chinese New Year
Reception have been learning about Chinese New Year this week. We started by discussing how we celebrated our New Year a few weeks ago and the traditions we have. We then learnt why and how China celebrates their new year. We listened to the story ‘The Great Race’ and learnt about the Chinese calendar. We joined the dots together to find out what animal year we were born in. We participated in a range of fun activities including trying different Chinese food, dancing to Chinese music, watching and learning a dragon dance, using chopsticks to eat and pick up materials, writing facts about the Chinese New Year and making our own red lanterns.
A busy, enjoyable week!
