Last week we learned about Chinese New Year. We read lots of books and watched some videos to find out what it is and how it is celebrated. We explored rice in our sensory play, made dragons that moved using split pins, found out what animal year we were born in and some of us retold the story of the Great Race. We decided to make some Chinese stir fry. We all helped to chop up the vegetables, we talked about how to use a knife safely and we were all very careful when using one under the supervision of Miss Reynolds. Once all of the ingredients were ready Mrs Grange cooked it for us and we all had a taste, some of us thought it was delicious! Later in the week we decided to make our own dragon, we chose a big box and worked as a team to paint and decorate it. When it was dry we watched videos of lion and dragon dances and then put on some music. We took it in turns to dance around the classroom in our dragon and some of us played instruments to accompany the music, we even did a special parade for the Nursery children. What a busy, fun filled week!
