Hand crafted lanterns; Chinese writing and cuisine were just some of the attractions at Windermere Day Nursery in Kettering, during a week-long celebration to mark the Chinese New Year.
The children at the Ofsted-rated Outstanding day nursery have immersed themselves in Chinese culture. They have been learning about different types of Chinese food and learning to use chopsticks, enjoying a range of different dishes. They have also been practising to use Chinese letters and have produced some fantastic examples on display.
Nursery Manager Jacky Bufton said: "The Chinese New Year offers a fantastic opportunity for to children to learn about different cultures and traditions. The children have enjoyed decorating the nursery in celebration of this important festival which is observed by people across the world."
Jacky added that staff and children were now looking forward to a year of wisdom, beauty, intelligence, pride and joy having satisfied all the traditional requirements for the start of a Chinese New Year.
