We have been reading the story of Jack and the Beanstalk and on Wednesday we planted our own bean plants. The children thoroughly enjoyed adding the soil into the pots and making a hole in the soil to add their beans. We then had to pour a little water onto our beans. Soon the children will be able to take home their beans with a bean diary to record the growth.
We Enjoyed celebrating Chinese New Year.
We started our celebrations by reading the story behind Chinese New year. We enjoyed listening to the story of the Great Race. This year 2017 was the Year of the Rooster. Children took part in fun creative activities including making Chinese drums, Chinese Dragon puppets, Chinese lanterns, and Hand painted roosters. We enjoyed watching the dragon dance and learning some Chinese customs. We all loved tasting our Chinese food and all had a good try at using the chop sticks to eat our food.
