8th February 2019 | In Pre-Prep News
In school, we share the enjoyment of celebrations and special occasions with all the children. Over the school year, we learn about different cultures and traditions as part of our curriculum and this week we learnt about Chinese New Year.
Visitors, stories, activities and assemblies help to bring to life occasions that are significant and important to lots of families. Nursery were lucky enough to have a visit from Zoolab, who brought a variety of animals into school to help tell the story of the Chinese Zodiac.
The internet is also a great teaching resource and access to information from around the world is at our fingertips. Children have been able to watch Chinese New Year celebrations in action and see Dragon dances and fireworks from the safety of the classroom. They have also learnt how and why we need to stay safe when on a computer, as the Safer Internet Day was also on Tuesday, this week. The aim of Safer Internet Day is to empower young people to take control of their digital lives and we begin that conversation in the Pre-Prep.
