Yes indeed… The children in Foundation Stage 2 have been learning about Chinese New Year this week.

As I was working hard at my laptop I heard bells, tambourines and drums and, when I looked out of the window, my eyes were met with an amazing sight… A DRAGON! Not a fire breathing dragon but a Chinese dragon. The children wished me a ‘Happy New Year’ in Chinese ‘Kung Hei Fat Choi’.


I also found out they have been writing shopping lists to make stir fry. After the shopping list they wrote instructions with numbers so they knew how to cook this yummy dish. Finally they went to the cooking area and with some help from the adults cooked up their own stir fry to taste! Some children even tried to eat using chopsticks. Tricky!
