Lunar New Year in Nursery
We had great fun celebrating Lunar New Year in nursery!
Over the last couple of weeks, Nursery have been busy joining in with the Lunar New Year festivities, which are celebrated by many in the Chinese community all around the world.
A celebration has to have food - and we loved cooking and eating our noodles and rice!
We practised our fine motor skills using tweezers and chop-sticks.
Small World Party
We had a Lunar New Year party at our small world table and built our own houses of bamboo.
We learnt about the importance of the Dragon Dance in the celebrations and decorated dragons using the auspicious Chinese colours of red, yellow and green.
Masks and Lanterns
We made dragon masks and lanterns for our very own dragon dance.
We have been busy in nursery living up to our Early Years Vision:
Be an Explorer. Be a Trier. Be a Talker. Be a Creator.
