Spring Term 1
I am so glad to be back in Class 1, and what a term it has been! We loved learning all about Chinese New Year; the story, the celebrations, the food and the history. We painted our own set of Chinese numbers and even learned how say ‘Hello’ and ‘Happy New Year’ in Chinese! Have a look at the photos of our very own Chinese lanterns and colourful celebration dragons.
We also learned all about the history and ancient traditions that surround Chinese New Year, including the Jade Emperor and the 12 animals of the Chinese calendar. Our display is up in our classroom if you would like to see some of our work.
Over the term we have also done lots of work with stories and rhymes. Some of our favourites include Peace at Last, The 3 Little Pigs and Cinderella. As part of our continuous provision, the children have been using fancy dress, masks and puppets to retell and reimagine the stories. Take a look at some of our ideas!
