Chinese New Year in EYFS

Today we have been learning all about the Chinese New Year.  We found out about the different ways that Chinese people celebrate the New Year and listened to the story about how the different years got their animal names: this is the year of the rat!  In our class we have looked carefully at different Chinese artefacts: the children particularly liked the red envelopes which are given as gifts with money inside.  In our maths area we have been having a go at writing some Chinese numbers. We have been very creative, making dragon masks, Chinese red lanterns and Happy New Year cards.  We also enjoyed some Chinese food tasting.  The jury is still out on sweet and sour sauce, but the prawn crackers were a big hit! Happy Chinese New Year to all who are celebrating.
