This week, we have been celebrating Chinese New Year and we have had lots of fun learning about the different culture and traditions. We took part in lots of exciting activities including:
- Dressing up in traditional Chinese clothing
- Playing in our role play area which was enhanced with Chinese artefacts
- Making our own dragon puppets, masks and playdough dragons
- Watching videos to learn about how people celebrate Chinese New Year
- Reading non-fiction books
- Painting Chinese numbers
- Making Chinese money envelopes and recognising the coins that we put inside
- Making Chinese New Year cards to send to family and friends
- Tasting different Chinese foods
- Adding money in our Chinese supermarket scene
We really enjoyed our celebrations and we could tell you lots of information that we had learnt. We all took home a fortune cookie and some chopsticks as a memento of our celebrations.
