Chinese New Year at TPA

IMG_8282

Within our Early Years Classes we celebrated Chinese New Year. 

The children will learnt about a range of traditions and activities that take part during this celebration.  They learnt about the Chinese New Year story of how the animals of the Chinese zodiac race to find out which year they will have named after them.  The children accessed small world resources and masks to be able to act out this story.  They learnt about the different traditions such as a Chinese New Year parade, creating costumes for and learning how to do a dragon dance, as well as well as tasting some different Chinese foods.  They used different instruments to make our own music for our Chinese new Year parade.
