Good Afternoon families, we hope you’ve had a wonderful day today.
Today Pre kindy was very fortunate to have a visit from Charlie’s Mum Jess today to teach us about their culture. We began by sitting on the mat as a class and listening to a story about Chinese new year. This important date on the Chinese calendar has been celebrated for many centuries. During the festivities ancestors are honoured and traditional ceremonies are held where people get together and welcome the new year with customs that shall bring good luck, good fortune, wealth, prosperity and happiness.
After our story we learn how to say Hello and Hello my name is… each child had a turn before we washed our hands and made our way to the tables for our next experience with Jess. We spread out at 3 tables and Jess came around to each table with the ingredients and utensils needed to make dumplings.. Each child had a turn at making their own dumpling including folding it together, we had a lot of fun!
Miss Bek and Miss Tiffany.
