To celebrate Chinese New Year, Preschool learned about the origins of Chinese New Year and the different traditions that are carried out during the celebrations. We passed around the red envelopes that are given out to children during Chinese New Year and the decorations that are stuck on the walls. We then learned about the different Chinese Zodiac animals and worked out that this year is the year of the rabbit! The children then made their very own dragon and painted it red because they had learned that red was a lucky colour.
Toddler and Baby room enjoyed exploring Chinese New Year themed Messy play activities.
