Chinese New Year

 

To celebrate Chinese New Year, the children have been learning about all of the different animals and why each year was named after them. They have also been trying out writing in Chinese.
 

We opened a Chinese restaurant in our wet area, where the children had to reserve a table before they could try the delicious food. They even used chopsticks to eat the food.
 

We had traditional costumes and decorations in our role play area. 
 

For P.E. We all had a go at Tai Chi, which was great fun and all the children were amazing. We definitely felt more relaxed afterwards. 

In P.E. this term we are looking at dance. Dance in Reception is great for children’s development which helps develop core strength, coordination and balance. We have began at looking at the story of ‘The Gruffalo’ and using this to promote dance moves to different types of music. We have tried out being a snake, a mouse, an owl the forest and of course the Gruffalo. The children have tried different movements according to which character they are and the type of music. The children are really enjoying these P.E. Lesson and it is amazing to see their imagination come to life. 

‘We’re going on a bear safari.’ We went on a great adventure to find some bears and find out about what bears need to survive. They looked at and gathered leaves for a shelter. They looked around the forget-me-not garden for food and they found plenty of flowers for the bees to make food. The looked in the pond for water for the bears to drink. We then followed the bear tracks to find some bears sleeping in the field. We all had great fun.

P.E. We enjoyed yoga this week. We acted out the different parts of ‘The Hungry Caterpillar’ with yoga moves.
