This week we have been learning about Chinese New Year. The children watched a video about a boy who lives in a Manchester and they saw how he celebrates Chinese New Year. They saw dragon dancing, learnt about the special food and saw how messages are written on lanterns and sent off to the Gods in the sky for good luck.
We have been learning about 2D and 3D shapes. The children have been looking at the names and the properties of the shapes. We have also sorted the shapes into common groups.
We have continued to do story scribing throughout the week and the children act out the stories they have written at the end of the day which they really seem to be enjoying. We're pleased with the progress they are making.
We have also learnt the tricky words 'I', 'go', 'to' and 'the'. These are words that cannot be sounded out and the children need to recognise these words by sight.
The children have had a Chinese New Year workshop today where they all did a dragon dance and learnt more about the celebrations.
Please remember to leave blend/sound games and books in reading folders so we can we can work on them at school too.
