During this week, Reception children have been learning all about Chinese New Year.
They acted out the story of how the Emperor told the 12 animals to have a race to see who would have the years named after them and especially enjoyed the part where the rat cheated and pushed the cat in the river!
They also took part in dragon dancing using the instruments and the costume used to become the dragon.
Most of the children found following the recipe to make vegetable stir fry an interesting experience and the finished results went down well as some children were trying some of the ingredients for the first time. Our role play areas became the Chinese Take Away and again the pupils enjoyed cooking and ordering their tasty meals.
