Chinese New Year

Welcome back to the second half of the Spring Term, can you believe it is only five weeks until the Easter break and we will be two thirds of the way through Reception!

This week we have been learning about the Chinese New Year and have done lost of exciting Chinese themed activities such as trying Chinese food, making paper lanterns and having a go at Chinese writing. Tomorrow we will be learning Chinese ribbon and dragon dancing in PE. Look out on Tapestry to see some of the activities we have been doing.

It was lovely to see so many parents join us this morning to celebrate the end of our current topic by looking through some of the work we have done and we can’t wait to share all of the fabulous home learning projects that have been completed in the last few weeks over the next couple of days.

Next week we start our new topic ‘When a Knight Won his Spurs II’ and lots of exciting things will be happening so watch this space!

  4. Sofia really enjoyed swimming trip this morning. Coming home afternoon, she was chatting about trip with her brother. “More swimming” she said as soon as daddy arrived home. We will be definitely taking her again. Really nice from school organising this trip for children.

  5. I think Mrs Lutus has kidnapped Lady Arabella and taken her to a Chelsea Match. I hope they find her soon.
    I liked going swimming with my class friends too!

    • If she is at Chelsea match she will need saving, if she was at a Liverpool match that would be different though!!!!
