Chinese New Year
The children really enjoying learning about the Chinese New Year. They used the chop sticks to taste a range of delicious foods. We were really proud of the children for being Riskatops and trying new flavours and textures. We also danced on the playground as a Chinese dragon, linking this from our Chinese music and their observations from the Chinese dragon video.
Other activities included the Chinese restaurant in the role play and dressing up in traditional role play costumes.
The children took the role of writing a Chinese food order from their menu very seriously, being Thinkadocus’ focusing on writing the sounds they could hear for the words needed.
Some children coloured in Chinese dragons of all the colours from our dancing dragon and labelled the different parts of the body.
The children’s next steps will be to locate China on the map and look at neighbouring countires.
