This week we have been looking at Chinese New Year. On the craft table we have made paper chinese lanterns and some of the children did some chinese writing on their lanterns using black paint and a fine brush - we have strung them up on a line in preschool. come in and see them, they look fab!
Earlier in the week we looked at people doing dragon dances on the computer and then we all had a go at doing our own dragon dance.
We have had the num,ber tray out and some children practised writing their own numbers. Learning how to represent numbers in marks is something we start at preschool.
On the construction table, we played with the Maxi Coloredo - matching designs to colours and shapes. We've also had the popoids out and played with the dinosaurs - the dinosaurs are a favourite with quite a few of our children!
We have spent time outdoors in the nice weather and have had fun with the chalks on the path outside preschool.
