After meeting the Chinese Lion who visited Blue Coat School on Tuesday, Early Years really got into the Chinese New Year festivities.

Nursery have been busy making cards and Chinese new years hats as well as practising drawing the different Chinese symbols. They also had lots of fun playing a Chinese dragon ordering game on Topmarks. CLICK HERE if you want to have another go again at home!

In Reception we made our own fireworks chalk drawings to celebrate the new year as well as paper chain dragons and danced to traditional chinese music during our P.E session. We learnt how to say Xīnnián hǎo (新年好) which means Good New Year and practised writing the letters using black paint and cotton buds.

Happy New Year to all the Children, Staff and Families Celebrating this week!
