Kung hei fat choi!
Today Nursery and Reception joined together to celebrate Chinese New Year. We had such an amazing day making fans, cakes, dragons, lanterns and much more. In addition to this, the continuous provision areas also had a Chinese theme with Chinese spice play dough, a Chinese restaurant, building The Great Wall of China in construction, measuring and pouring rice and threading yellow and red beads to make fancy Chinese necklaces. We hope you enjoy looking through the slideshow of our eventful day and thank you so much for providing the children with such fabulous costumes, they all looked amazing.
Happy Saint Gilbert's Day!
All of the children enjoyed an extra special treat to celebrate Saint Gilbert's day. Our ice lollies were very cold but they were delicious!
Let It Snow!
The children were so excited when it snowed on Wednesday but unfortunately it wasn't safe enough for them to play outside so we decided to bring the snow indoors for them. They showed excellent verbal communication skills, making up stories about penguins getting stuck in the snow, whilst some children explored the concept of capacity by filling up different sized containers.
