Happy Chinese New Year

We are celebrating the New Year in honour to our families whom have a Chinese cultural background. Ms Nerissa has set up various art activities which are making lanterns and collaging bowls of oranges which represents good luck.  Our gross motor activity involved crawling through the dragon’s tail to get to the other end of the obstacle course. Then we played a game of ‘Catch the Fishes Tail’. This game involved MS Bernadette and Ms Rina being the dragon’s mouth and the children are the dragon’s body. The children take turns in crawling through the dragon’s body so they can wash their hands.

Outcome 1:Provide times and space for children to engage in both individual and collaborative pursuits. (EYLF)

Outcome 2: Child recognises that they have a right to belong in a community. (EYLF)

Outcome 3: Using sensory capabilities to explore and respond to the world.  (EYLF)
