Chinese New Year

We all celebrated Chinese New Year this term. We learned all about Chinese New Year by doing lots of different activities with all the teachers within the unit. We leaned all about the stoy of Chinese New Year and how it came to be, we tasted some food and even learned a dragon dance.

We really enjoyed our day and we enjoyed learning about another culture.

Autumn 2 - Fairy Tales

The Three Little Pigs

The Gingerbreadman

Little Red Riding Hood


Our new topic is 'Fairy Tales', and we have used our topic to help us learn in lots of different ways. Nursery Blue have really enjoyed learning all about fairy tales. We have listened to stories, looked at story sacks and pretended to be characters from different stories. We have had a truely wonderful time. We even made our very own gingerbread men, who didn't run off!
