Celebrating Chinese New Year 2020 - the year of the rat!

Kung Hei Fat Choi!

Our Squirrels, Hedgehogs and Badgers have been super busy learning all about Chinese New Year. We have looked at books with bright and colourful pictures showing us how CNY is celebrated all over the world; we found China on our world map and added a label to help us remember where it is; we watched a video that showed us how a family in the UK might celebrate; we ate and served up food in our very own Chinese restaurant (complete with menus, teeny tiny fortune cookies and a till and phone for taking orders); we had a go at writing the numerals 1, 2 and 3 in Chinese characters using paintbrushes and red sequins and glitter; we had a red tea party in our water tray; and we developed our fine-motor skills by picking up string noodles with chopsticks and putting them on a plate. Plus, of course, lots more wonderful learning choices both inside and out!

We hope you are enjoying seeing your child's observations on Tapestry. Don't forget that you can add observations of your own at home - we love to celebrate the children's home-successes with them and it is also really helpful to us in forming a well-rounded view of every child. 

And our new Squirrel and Badgers are settling in beautifully - well done.

See you all next week for more busy-ness!
