The Year of the Dragon at Children 1st Nurseries - Children 1st Day Nurseries

The Year of the Dragon at Children 1st Nurseries

The children at several of our nurseries have been finding out about the Chinese New Year celebrations.

Dancing dragons have been created using junk materials and nurseries have been festooned with red and gold decorations and, of course, Chinese lanterns. Chinese writing and numerals have been looked at, and the children have had a go at using chopsticks both in their play and to eat their lunch. They were interested to discover that for millions of people around the world, chopsticks are used instead of knives and forks.

No celebration would be complete without food and the children were keen to sample some Chinese food. Noodles, chicken, prawn crackers and spring rolls all made a tasty feast! At Toton the children rolled up their sleeves to make their own spring rolls, whilst at Wragby Road the Early Years prepared the vegetables to add into the noodles.

Some nurseries held their own parades led by dancing dragons as part of the fun. What a lovely way to draw our celebration of the Chinese New Year to a close.

We wish all our families who are celebrating the Year of the Dragon a very Happy New Year.

We hope you enjoy looking through the gallery showing a selection of photographs from Clowne, Leicester, Plumtree, Syston, Toton, Wragby Road and Biborough.
