Flying Start @ Duchy Celebrate Chinese New Year!

Flying Start @ Duchy’s Diverse Celebrations!

The celebrations spread across lots of areas of learning through lots of different types of play….

From exploring noodles using chop sticks and scissors in their sensory play, trying to master chopsticks using their careful fine motor skills in preschool, dancing to Chinese music with ribbon sticks and then making Spring Rolls for a yummy snack!

Carefully filling the pastry with our noodle, vegetables and bean sprouts that we had mixed up, before our cook baked them in the oven…

And the best bit! Yum yum!

What a busy day! Alongside all of this fun learning, the children learnt about Chinese culture, recognising that different people celebrate different festivals… but actually it can be a lot of fun to join in!
