Welcome back to term 4. This first week we will be continuing to talk about China and how the Chinese celebrate the New Year. We will learn the different animals in the Chinese calendar, with this year being the year of the goat/sheep. We will use chopsticks again with different Chinese foods and will have a Chinese Restaurant in our role play area.
We hope to look again at the unusual symbols in Chinese writing and extend activities listening to Chinese music and moving our bodies in different ways. We will use lots of groups discussions to continue to promote children's language skills and speech together with turn taking and sharing the toys.
At home please continue to support your child with their number recognition, especially 1 - 5, using their environment, such as number plates and door numbers. Help children to count the stairs as they climb them, how many people sitting at the table or how many grapes on their plate.
