Dear Pre-Reception parents,

Mid-Autumn Festival (Moon Festival) is coming soon. This week, we had some tuning in activities regarding this festival. First, children were given a  yellow round shape to make connections to things that are round. Children brainstormed different ideas and thought about round objects such as cookies, apples, balls, etc. We then shared a story called ‘Hou Yi Shot down the Suns‘, which is one of the famous tales related to the moon festival. After the story, we played a game in which children needed to acted out how Hou Yi carried a bow with an arrow, and then a sun would disappear each time they made a shooting action. While playing this game, children were counting in Chinese together how many suns left in the sky.

 

Pre-Reception children made their own paper lanterns this week. They showed their creativity,  increased their cognitive skills and trained their hand muscles though cutting. It could be quite a challenging process by some but you can see how confident our children became after they tried and tried and got something amazing accomplished. 

We learned new songs “月餅” (Mooncake) and “小星星”(Little Stars). We have also revised the songs“小手拍拍”(Clap Little Hands ) and “頭兒肩膀膝腳趾”(Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes). The children enjoyed singing in Chinese more and more.

Dear Reception story:

This week we have experienced the Mid-Autumn Festival celebration by involving with our children in a series of related activities. Children used playdoh made their own Mooncakes, they following our instructions tried to finish the task by themselves. Children were practicing Chinese in 搓一搓 rolling, 揉一揉kneading, 包起來 Warping and colors. And then they tried out Mooncake,  which is the traditional celebration food for Mid Autumn Festival, in the ways of smelling, feeling and tasting. We also shared what is our favorite food. Through a series of activities,  our children have built up an understanding about why, who and how to celebrate Mid-Autumn Festival. Again we are so amazed about how much curiosity and imagination those little heads are capable of.
