This week we have been learning about Chinese New Year. We have found out all about how and why it is celebrated. We listened to a story about the Chinese zodiac which determines the animal that each year is named after and we learnt that this year it is the Year of the Pig.
We explored rice and chopsticks in the investigation tray, we made 'lucky red' money envelopes with chocolate coins inside!
We also learnt a Chinese New Year greeting and practised saying it to our friends.
In Maths, we have been completing assessments
In Literacy we have been writing sentences about Chinese New Year
Next week we will be learning all about 5 Little Ducks as part of our Nursery rhyme topic. We are also very excited to find out all about Minibeasts on Wednesday when the Mini Monster Roadshow comes to visit!! We are looking forward to seeing all the creepy crawlies and learning lots of facts about them and maybe even holding some of them.......
Maths Focus - counting back using a number line
Literacy Focus - Assessments
DON'T FORGET to label all school uniform and any other items brought into school (eg gloves, hats, water bottles). So if lost, can be returned to their owners!! Many thanks.
