Chinese New Year

In Reception we are learning about Chinese New Year. We have listened to the story of the Jade Emperor and how the animals had a race to see where they came in their race to be on the Chinese Zodiac. This has fitted in really well with learning ordinal language in maths – first, second, third etc.

We are looking forward to eating a Chinese food banquet and watching some dragon dancing on the whiteboards.

We are going to have the opportunity to paint pictures of dragons, make kites and dance like a dragon.
