Spring term 1 week 5

We hope you got to enjoy the snow last week – we certainly did here at school!

This week we have been taking part in Children’s Mental Health Week by thinking about how we feel in different situations, and ways we can deal with our feelings if they start to take over. Look out for some of our work on a whole school display in the hall.

On Tuesday afternoon we celebrated Chinese New Year. We started  by finding out the story behind Chinese New Year. Ask your child which animal year it is! We  then tried some yummy Chinese food and made Chinese lanterns.

In maths we have been learning about weight and comparing objects by weight, learning to use balance scales. Our Words of the Week last week were are, day, they. This week they are of, said, going. Please keep revising the words in your child’s reading diaries, and do go back to earlier words that they may have forgotten. In PE we did some gymnastics activities in the hall with Mr Davies – great fun!

Next week we are continuing our theme of our feelings by thinking about who is special to us. We will also be doing some Valentine baking.

Chinese New Year

On Tuesday afternoon we will be celebrating Chinese New Year. The children will be taking part in art activities and have the opportunity to taste some Chinese food including noodles, sweet chilli sauce, prawn crackers and fortune cookies.

Please let a member of staff know if your child  cannot eat any of these.
