Chinese New Year

This week we have been learning about Chinese New Year. We have completed lots of different activities and made Chinese lanterns. We have found the first letter of our name in Chinese and painted it with fine paintbrushes. We have also been writing Chinese numbers and mark making in red sand.

Rangoli

Nursery have found out about how Sikh and Hindu people prepare for Diwali through a video on cbeebies.

if you paste   http://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/watch/lets-celebrate-diwali   into your internet browser you can watch it too!

One of this week’s activities in the setting is to carefully colour in a Rangoli pattern. They put these patterns on their front doorstep.

This is a great example of very thoughtful and careful colouring.

Bonfire Night

This week in Nursery we have been doing about “Bonfire Night”. We have talked about how people celebrate it and the history around why we celebrate- the children were shocked that Guy Fawkes was trying to kill the King! The children have also made some amazing firework and bonfire pictures using glitter and paint.
Most importantly we have been learning about how to stay safe on Bonfire Night!
