Chinese New Year
On Friday 12th February we celebrated Chinese New Year throughout the nursery. The children enjoyed learning all about the Chinese New Year celebrations and festivals and the year of the ox. The preschool children enjoyed a short educational clip of the celebrations and extended into their chopstick mark making and Chinese role play with Chinese sets.
The toddler room and baby room enjoyed their Chinese New Year themed playdough and all rooms enjoyed dancing to traditional Chinese sounds and music.
