Last week in Reception we celebrated Chinese New Year!
We learnt the story of the animals and the children were all brilliant at remembering the order the animals came in! We watched videos to find out how Chinese children celebrate the new year and the children were all very interested in this! After watching a video about a Chinese New Year parade we even had a go at doing our own dragon dance! We also used our scissor skills on the finger gym to make a Chinese dragon. As part of Friday activities we tasted some Chinese food, and the children all tried noodles, sweet and sour sauce, prawn toast, prawn crackers and spring rolls.
Here are some pictures of us celebrating Chinese New Year!
On Wednesday this week the snow came and the children in school had great fun playing in the snow! They all came well prepared and we wrapped up warm with our wellies on and went to explore the snow! Some children made snow angels, threw snowballs at a target on the wall, filled buckets with snow and we explored some amazing icicles that we found in our outside area! When we came in from playing outside in the afternoon we had a very special treat of hot chocolate to warm up which the children enjoyed very much! We were too busy having fun to take many photos, but here are a few!
We hope to see you all wrapped up warm on Monday!
