This week has been busy with the children learning about the Chinese New Year, they did lots of activities around this theme including making their own coolie hat, a paper dragon, trying out chop sticks to pick up rice and making a big dragon's head ready for our dragon dance. They also enjoyed eating the rice and noodles. As it was the year of the dog we had a visit from Dolly the dog, she had a lovely time saying hello to the children.
Our theme this half term has been winter and polar animals, the children have been extremely busy creating lots of lovely pictures and winter themed crafts which are displayed in the nursery. They have also been exploring ice in different ways, they have painted it, rescued animals from big ice blocks and watched it melting. We turned our role play area into an arctic explorers den where they could hide in an igloo and play with the arctic animals.
