Throughout Term 3 we have been learning about Winter Wonderland and Starry Nights at Nursery. This involved us thinking about the difference between day and night, considering the occupations of people who work while we are sleeping and sharing activities that we carry out in the daytime and those that take place at night. We were surprised to notice that some activities are carried out in the daytime and at nighttime!
We learnt about the cold weather conditions in Winter and the suitable items of clothing that we need to remember to wear when we go outside. We recognised animals who like the cold conditions.
Within this term we also learnt about the customs of families who celebrate the Lunar New Year. This year was the Year of the Tiger and we shared the story together of The Tiger Who Came to Tea. We made tea when exploring the resources used to make tea. We found out that red is a lucky colour and that families have new outfits to wear for Lunar New Year. Families sweep out the old year when cleaning their homes and bring in the new year when sharing a family meal together. We learnt The Dragon Dance and moved to the music. We ended the week by comparing how we celebrate New Year with our families.
