Celebrating Chinese New Year at Sandfield Day Nursery
Children from Sandfield Day Nursery in Headington are welcoming the ‘Year of the Pig’ with a series of themed activities to celebrate Chinese New Year.
At the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery in Sandfield Road, pre-schoolers showcased their creativity by making an array of Chinese style arts and crafts, including lanterns, dragons, fans and greeting cards for their families.
Noodles and chopsticks were also used for messy play, where children were able to explore the different textures, before being told the story of the Chinese zodiac, much to their delight.
Sandfield Day Nursery Manager, Kim Hambridge explained;
“Everyone has loved the Chinese New Year activities and the endless opportunities to be creative. We believe it’s important to teach the children about a broad range of cultural events to give them a greater understanding of the world around them and celebrate diversity within our community.”
