Chinese New Year

This week the Nursery department invited the Reception children to celebrate Chinese New Year together. We talked about the legend of the Chinese New Year and what people do during this festive period. The children were treated to an array of traditional Chinese activities such as eating Chinese noodles with chopsticks, making the Year of the Pig biscuits, decorating dragons, red envelopes and snakes, playing in the Chinese restaurant role play area and listening to Chinese music. We even practised saying ‘Kung Hei Fat Choy’ –‘Happy New Year’ to each other.
