Good morning everybody! I can’t believe it’s the end of term already. You have been amazing. Mrs O’Connell and I are really proud of you.We have been so  impressed with the fantastic things you have sent to us. After today’s activities you and your grown ups deserve a well earned rest !

Today is the first day of Chinese New Year. This is how you say happy new year in Chinese 

You can watch another version of The Great Race story or can enjoy listening to Miss Green read her book.

Story Time: "The Great Race: The Story of the Chinese Zodiac" by Dawn Casey

The Great Race

So according to the story everyone has an animal for the year they were born in. I was born in the year of the dragon. I wonder which animal year you were born in? Why don’t you ask your adult and find out what that means you are supposed to be like. The two links below can help.

Today we are going to be looking at how to write sentences using a conjunction . A conjunction can make a sentence longer and more interesting by adding some extra detail. These words are conjunctions

                               and   but  so   because

As this is something new, why don't you see how you get on with the sentences and email me your work today.


Today you can play a game to check your phonic knowledge. You can be poop deck pirates, reading words and deciding if they are real or not . Start with sounds we have done this week :  au   ey  ph Then you can choose some others you think you need to practise.

Word of the day 


​​​​​​       they       

Remember to keep practising these words

Today’s maths is all about time and sequencing and ordering . Can you look back over the story of the Great Race and put the animals in order of who won the race? Who was 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th? We call this ordinal numbers. You could try the cut out and stick activity to put the animals in order.

There are also 12 months in a year and 7 days in a week and they follow a certain order. Do you know the order? Maybe these songs can help you remember?
