After Christmas the children came back to school eager to learn. They began by learning about Chinese New Year. The children made dragon heads, painted Chinese wall hangings and cooked Chinese meals in their roleplay takeaway. Following this we studied bears after reading ‘We’re going on a Bear Hunt’ by Michael Rosen. The children retold the story in the forest by going on a bear hunt and built caves for bears using 3D shapes.
At the end of the half term the children participated in Maths and Science Week. At the start of the week they were called into an assembly with a police officer who informed them that Red Ted had gone missing. The children returned to investigate the crime in their police stations, taking finger prints, interviewing suspects and making wanted posters. During this week the children also took part in a John Lewis workshop where they measured the length of fabric using rulers and counted the number of buttons in a container for their haberdashery department.
We are so pleased with how the children have progressed throughout the beginning of the Spring Term.
Thank you for your continued support.
