Chinese New Year!

In Term 3, during our 'Where Can We Go?' enquiry, the children learnt about Chinese New Year. We found China on the map and looked at some similarities and differences between China and our local community. The children created Chinese Lanterns through their Artist Challenge and tried noodles and prawn crackers during their snack time. We spoke about the Year of the Rabbit and the children wrote gift ideas that they could use for their families and we have read the book - The Magic Paintbrush - where a young Chinese girl named Shen uses a magic paintbrush which then brings her paintings to life! The home corner was set up as a Chinese restaurant and the children enjoyed serving each other and sitting together.
