Chinese New Year

Today, Tuesday 5th February, Chinese New Year begins.

This year is the year of the pig.

In nurseries and schools up and down the country today, children will be celebrating and learning about Chinese New Year in lots of fun and exciting ways. With just two little ones aged just 16 and 19 months however, we kept it simple with this fab Peppa Pig Chinese New Year book. Because, if there’s one thing all my mindees love it’s Peppa Pig!

Happy Chinese New Year!

This week we have been looking at Chinese New Year. This year is the year of the dog.

I love the Newsround website for great, simple explanations of celebrations –

Here at Aston Childcare, we love a good collage – all that cutting, gluing and sticking is great for the children’s fine motor skills, and sat around the table together is great for their communication & language and personal, social and emotional development.

We have used some beautiful Chinese inspired printed papers with pictures of beautiful lanterns and cherry blossom for our collages this week, have been dressing up in our fantastic traditional Chinese dressing up outfit and made New Year Cards for Mums and Dads.

Gung hay fat choy!
