Chinese New Year
 
         
 

This week Early Years have been finding out about how and why Chinese New Year is celebrated.

 
 
 
 

We have enjoyed drumming and dancing like

Chinese dragons and worked together brilliantly.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

We have explored rice and noodles in our

‘messy tray’ and tried to pick them up using chopsticks

– some of us are very good at it!

 
 
 
 

One of our favourite parts of the week was when Lisa, Sol’s Grandma, came to talk to us and cook us stir fry.

 

It smelt and tasted amazing! Most of us had seconds and there were lots of empty plates by the end.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Lisa told us about the animals used to celebrate each year.

 

This year is the year of the horse –

do you know which year you were born in?
