Room 12 have been learning about Chinese New Year (also known as Spring Festival). It starts on 25th January and goes on to 8th February and we have learned that it is the Year of the Rat.
We watched and listened to the story of the animals race on the whiteboard.
We made rat masks by sticking fur and felt on to the rat faces. We also investigated our sensory trays, which are filled with rice, money bags, easy-grip chopsticks and Chinese soup spoons. We had clothes and hats to try on too.
We also celebrated Burns Night. We designed our own tartans using the interactive weaver and made thistles by printing with green paint and then gluing on wool in different shades of purple. We think they look very effective!
