Chinese New Year

This week we have been learning about Chinese New Year. The children have been finding out about how people celebrate​ and have had a go at making their own lanterns and red envelopes. We have also been retelling the story of the Chinese Zodiac and the children have been applying their phonics knowledge to write some amazing captions and sentences! Take a look at our new role play areas… the children are looking forward to trying some real Chinese food next week!

At Thistle Hill, our children are excited and motivated to engage in rich and challenging experiences, both inside and outside of their classroom. We have high ambitions for all of our children, with staff planning carefully to meet each child’s needs and stage of development, ensuring our children get off to a great start in their education. Child initiated play based learning is at the heart of our practice. We carefully plan for opportunities, activities and experiences that develop all of our children into independent, resilient and confident learners.​
