What have we been up to this week?
This week in reception the children have been learning about celebrations with a focus on the Chinese New Year. Miss Shing has led a discussion about the celebration, showing the children a range of associated things. The children looked at a mask of a dragon which is worn to perform traditional Chinese dancing. They also looked at decorations such as banners and lanterns likening them to their own experiences of celebrations. The children were excited to watch videos of dragon dances and listen to traditions surrounding the preparation of the Chinese New Year.
