Celebrating Chinese New Year in our Pinkie St.Peters’s Nursery

It has been a busy week in the nursery. We’ve has so much fun celebrating Chinese New Year. We’ve found out that this year is a year of pig. We enjoyed making a dragon in the art area and danced with it on Friday. We’ve tasted some Chinese food ,did some amazing Chinese writing and we’ve had a turn to eat some marshmallows using chopsticks. We also enjoyed taking food orders in our Chinese café. We’ve watched a short video of how people celebrate New Year in China.

Celebrating Robert Burns in the nursery

We’ve had a fun filled week learning about our famous Scottish poet Robert Burns. The children participated in making some colourful tartan  and dancing to  ceilidh music. They’ve been listening to some of his poems – Up in the mornin’s no fur me’ and  ‘The moose’and learned some Scottish words. On Friday  the 25th of January we had a ‘pairty’ with a special Burns supper – haggis, oatcakes and Scottish cheddar cheese. We watched a display of HIghland Dancing and had a poem about a ‘wee dug’.
