Lunar New Year

This week Bright Beginnings has been celebrating Lunar New Year! We have been trying Chinese fortune cookies, experimenting with chopsticks during teatime and learning about the animals of the Chinese zodiac.

Small groups of preschool children particularly enjoyed catching the bus into the city centre to visit a Chinese supermarket, where they picked up food such as fortune cookies, lychees and jackfruit for their friends to try. They also stocked up on chopsticks and mini Chinese pellet drums known as bolang gu!
