Year of the Dragon!

Saturday 10 February 2024

This week Nursery have been celebrating the upcoming festival- Lunar New Year!

This year is the year of the Dragon, the children wanted to make a really big Dragon for the classroom, so we got busy practicing our gross motor movements and fine motor skills. The combination of both help to support control and balance, preparing them for early writing.

We asked the children- ‘What is Lunar New year?’

They clean their houses to get rid of the dust- Savannah

Red means lucky – Ella M

It’s a big Dragon- Louie

They have lot’s of fireworks – Mia

We also tasted some traditional Oriental food. We had sweet and sour rice, vegetable spring rolls, and vegetable Bao Buns.

It’s really yummy, I didn’t think I would like it – Charlie

I like the buns, they were fluffy – Ella D

Forest School

We had an exciting time in forest school this week. We made a fire!

The children learnt the importance of not being left alone around a fire as it is hot and dangerous!

Help at home: What 3 things can you remember that you needed to make a fire? .. think about what Shaun needed to put into the fire-pit!

Of course when you have a fire, you have to toast some marshmallows!


This week sound/s was: ‘C’ for Cat ‘K’ for Kite. We know that both letters make the same sound.

Rhyme of the week: Jack and Jill went up the hill

We’ve had a fabulous first half-term, we welcomed some new faces and we’ve all made some new friends. We hope you have a lovely half-term break and we will see you on Monday 19 February.
