CHINA: Country of the Month

Posted on:

This month the children will be learning about the primary colours of the Chinese flag and stars. This will support learning around counting, shapes and colours. It is always fun for children to learn about different clothes, homes and food specific to other countries! And who doesn’t enjoy Chinese food! The children will also get the chance to practice some Chinese writing too.

To support of exploration of China, we will also be celebrating ‘World Kite Flying Day’, which encourages the exploration of flying and making different types of kites, which are a big part of Chinese culture. There are some wonderful kite designs that look like dragons, lions and butterflies too. The origins of kites even date back to China in 470 B.C.
