Celebrating Our World
We will be celebrating Chinese New Year with the children in the week commencing February 1st 2022.
Chinese new year is a time that we explore a range of traditions, such as foods, dancing, music and creativity. We learn about the Chinese culture and how traditions are celebrated. The children are encouraged to engage in tasks that allow them the opportunity to learn about those around them, from reading traditional tales.
This year is the year of the Tiger, which coincides beautifully with our Spring term topic, of Amazing animals. The tiger is known as the king of all beats in China. The Zodiac sign tiger resembles; strength and braveness, again working in theme with our Pixie Values. The children will have available recourses in their learning environments to explore and expand their learning of what Chinese new year is, and what it means to those around them and our Chinese community. The children at Pixies will be exploring traditional Chinese clothing, exploring traditional Chinese utensils during tuff spot tasks, offering the children further opportunities to explore tastes and experiences that are celebrated in China. We venture out into our community, and enjoy buying fresh local produce from our local Chinese supermarket, ready to return to Pixies to create our own Chinese New Year feast.
