There’s lots happening in Nursery this week! As well as carrying on our theme of The Three Little Pigs we’ve been celebrating Chinese New Year (which happens to be the year of the pig) and have been talking about what makes us happy and what makes us sad as part of Children’s Mental Health Week.
Mummy Pig was very sad and upset at carpet time yesterday but didn’t quite know why. The children thought she might be missing her little pigs and came up with some lovely ideas to make her smile again. Mummy Pig received lots of hugs and beautiful pictures the children had drawn for her.
In preparation for today’s Chinese celebrations we all went over to the Millennium Dragon in our key groups to see the Dragons and decorations they have. One of our little girls had a traditional Chinese outfit which she kindly brought in to show and model for us.
Today we had our Chinese food tasting, the children all sat very nicely and most were happy to try the different foods we had. They all agreed the prawn crackers were the best! We’ve even managed to squeeze in PE, French, sock puppets, Chinese dragons and learning about the zero pond in Numeracy – and its only Tuesday! Here’s some photos of our week so far.
