Chinese New Year!
Ni-hao! 2013 is the Year of the Snake and Class 3 have been celebrating this week! Our outdoor area was transformed into a Chinese restaurant and the children were busy taking orders, writing menus and 'making food'! Aloysius Bear was also visiting us this week and we have been been busy showing him how to make Chinese dragons and fans and finding China on a map. We've also been making our own Chinese flags, reading books about China and learning to count and write the numbers to 10 in Mandarin! Finally, we tasted traditional Chinese food and watched a video of a Chinese New Year parade! What a busy week!
