Chinese New Year

The Reception children have been learning about the Chinese New Year. They have discovered where China is on the globe and how big the country is. 2020 is the Year of the Rat, the children enjoyed the story of the New Year Race which decided the names of the 12 Chinese  Zodiac symbols. They found out about how families celebrate the new year with wishing trees, Chinese dragons, dance and music. They enjoyed tasting noodles and rice crackers, trying to eat with chopsticks was tricky but fun! At the end of their learning journey the children each took a Fortune Cookie home.
