This week we have been learning all about Chinese New Year 🧧.
We have been exploring lots of different resources.
On Tuesday we read a story all about what happens during Chinese New Year 🧧. We all let off party poppers to recreate the firecrackers 🧨
We also tried to us chopsticks 🥢 to pick up rice 🍚 and noodles🍝. It was very tricky.
We used some black paint 🎨 to decorate Chinese lanterns.
Some of us tried to recreate some Chinese writing. It was very difficult but we had lots of fun.
We also enjoyed some sensory play with rice in the big tuff tray and sprinkled them over our feet 🦶.
On Wednesday we explored some Chinese food 🥘.
We explored Chinese egg noodles 🍝, peas and rice 🍚 and fortune cookies🥠 . They were very tasty and we all had our fortune read to use.
We also recreated some Chinese New Year music with drums, tambourines and shakers. It was very loud and we all enjoyed dancing to it.
On Thursday we explored traditional Chinese clothes, some of us loved dressing up in the outfits and others loved wearing the hats.
We even created some dragons using different shapes, we used circles for the face , semi circle for the mouth and triangles for the teeth and spikes.
We also created a big dragon 🐉 and decorated it using lots of different materials and afterwards we did some dragon dancing 🕺 .
On Friday we explored some more Chinese food 🥘 we tried some vegetable spring rolls, rice 🍚, noodles 🍝, prawn crackers and some oranges 🍊. It was all very tasty 😋 and we all really enjoyed eating it for our snack.
Santa had his own little grotto on the playground and we all went in and saw him.
We each saw Santa 🎅 and his Elf 🧝♀️ In the grotto and the Elf checked the Naughty or Nice list to see which list we were on, all of us were on the Nice list which meant we all got a present off of Santa 🎅.
