CHINESE NEW YEAR
We have had such fun in our nursery this week learning how the Chinese people celebrate New Year!
We shared the story of how the years were named after the animals. We learned that 2019 is the Year of the Pig!
We learned a Chinese dragon song and added musical instrument sounds to it!
We made our own Chinese dragons with long tails.
We decorated our nursery with Chinese Lucky pictures using red and gold as these are thought to bring good luck for the coming year!
Finally we enjoyed Chinese food - Egg Fried Rice, Noodles and Prawn Crackers!
Jack and the Beanstalk
We have been learning lots in our nursery based on the story.
We have sorted and counted the giant's coins. We worked together to create the giant's castle using junk! We made 'wanted' posters to catch naughty Jack!
We used story telling props to act out the story and then used the Tiny Tweetie's song to add music and movement.
Lastly, we made 'Magic Bean Stew'! Look at our photos and see how we made it. Maybe you could make it at home to!
