This week in Reception we have been very busy learning about Chinese New Year!
We read the story of Chinese New Year and put the animals in the order they came in the race. We also learnt about the customs and traditions that take place during the Chinese New Year festival.
We loved trying the Chinese food! Which food did you enjoy the most? Can you describe what it tasted like?
We also enjoyed doing lots of Chinese New Year activities in continuous provision. We made dragon masks, painted pictures of dragons, wrote Chinese New Year cards, made a paper chain, created Chinese lanterns, used role play to retell the story and practised forming the Chinese numbers in the coloured rice.
