This week we have learnt about Chinese New Year and enjoyed playing in the new role play area, acting out the animal race story, performing a dragon dance and making lanterns to take home.

2020 is the Year of the Rat, so our Julia Donaldson story was, of course, The Highway Rat. We decided he wasn’t a very kind rat and thought of better ways in which he could have behaved.

Our number of the week is number two. Alongside recognising the number 2, we thought of things we have two of (such as eyes, ears, legs etc), ways of making two and finding two represented in the environment. The Nursery children really enjoy finding things to put on our 2 board!
