Lunar/Chinese New Year 2023

Recently we learnt about the celebration of Lunar/Chinese New Year. We explored how the texture of noodles changed from hard to soft after cooking, decorated lanterns, looked at Chinese writing and created our own using paint, read stories and did dragon dancing.  We made observational drawings of flowers (flowers represent new growth after a long winter and are important signifiers of life and good fortune), explored tweezers, tongs and chopsticks in the home area and tasted noodles with soy sauce, prawn crackers and spring rolls (yum!).
