Chinese New Year – as Chinese New Year falls on 31st January this year we will be spending the week involved in Chinese inspired activities such as making lanterns, painting our own Ming plates and tasting Chinese cuisine. Some of the children will be having a go at making Tingsha bells (like small cymbals) therefore if you have any metal jar lids that you could bring into nursery for us to use we would love to recycle them.
National Story Telling Week starts on 3rd February. Throughout the week the staff will be planning various activities to do with the children based around storytelling. We plan to take small groups of the older children to visit the library and would like to invite parents into the nursery to read their favourite stories to groups of children. If you are available at all please speak to the staff in your child’s care room.
Winter Olympics- This begins on Friday 7th February. We plan to talk about the televised events that parents have shared with children at home as we do not watch live television in the nursery.
