Chinese New Year 2014 – Nursery

February 11, 2014

Nursery celebrates Chinese New Year!

Green Ash had great fun on Friday when we celebrated Chinese New Year. We had already practiced our Dragon Dance, (minus the head), on Tuesday and were very excited about performing our dance again – this time with our dragon head. When moving, it was quite tricky for the ‘lower jaw’ to keep up with the ‘upper jaw’ and for the ‘body to remain behind the head’, but this made it all the more fun!

We have explored how the Chinese celebrate New Year and enjoyed listening and moving to Chinese music and accompanying the music with Chinese instruments.

We especially loved the Chinese noodles and crackers – particularly when using chopsticks!
