Reception enjoy Chinese New Year

Reception have really enjoyed learning about Chinese New Year, so we  followed their interest by including many activities themed around Chinese New Year for the children to choose from. They were challenged to write the Chinese symbols for numbers 0-10, create Chinese symbols for different zodiacs out of playdoh, sequence given numbers correctly to create their own Chinese dragon on the interactive screen and finally to use chopsticks to pick up ‘poppets’ and place the correct amount next to a number card. The children really enjoyed the activities and were very excited to try out each and every one. We were very impressed with the children’s ability to use chopsticks and their attempts at writing chinese symbols. Have a look at some of the photos we took.
