Chinese New Year

Gung Hei Fat Choy

2022 The Year Of The Tiger



The children have thoroughly enjoyed learning about Chinese New Year and taking part in celebrations at nursery. The children had fun using chopsticks to eat their Chinese New Year party food of prawn crackers, spring rolls and prawn toast with sweet chilli sauce. The children developed their hand eye coordination skills, cutting and joining techniques while making lanterns for the role-play restaurant.
In the Chinese restaurant children ordered food, made deliveries, took orders over the phone, cooked and served up meals for their friends. Some enjoyed browsing through Chinese cookbooks and Chinese newspapers. 
The children love dressing up in lucky Chinese colours. They used scarves to dance like dragons in the hall with Mrs Neil. It was exciting to be part of the dragon processions. The children loved playing the drums and cymbals loudly as an accompaniment to the firecracker dance! The children listened to the story of Chinese New Year; they talked about the story of the animals race and how the tricky rat climbed on the ox' head to cross the river first. The children replicated the race with animals in the water play. Some children make models of Chinese dragons and a Chinese restaurant out of blocks, Lego, play dough and Mobilo construction kits.
The children made lucky red envelopes, mark making and writing their names in gold: they took their envelopes home with chocolate coins inside to celebrate the Chinese New Year.
