Yippee – it’s Friday!! It is also the last Friday of this half term.
Epic readers – well done! We have got our badge for reading 150 books! That is just amazing. It is based on how many books we have read as a class, so if you have not been on to the website, have a look over the holidays as there are some lovely books on there.
Today we are going to combine our topic and maths together. We are going to have a go at writing Chinese numerals. Watch the PowerPoint which shows you how to form Chinese numerals. You can either paint them or use a felt pen. Take your time, it is a little tricky.
In our Literacy work today we are going make fortune cookies using cupcake cases and writing a fortune message to attach to it. See the attached picture. The messages you write must be positive or make somebody happy. You could write something like, you make me smile, happy Chinese New Year, I hope you will have a nice day, I feel happy when I see you. I am sure you will have some great ideas.
In phonics we are going to continue to practise phase 2/3 tricky words by completing the ‘My heart is full’ activity. Choose 6 tricky words for your child to practise. Write them next to the numbers 1-6 like in the picture. Each time your child rolls the dice they have to write the tricky word that goes with that number in the heart. Remember to use the online dice if you do not have on at home.
Select use dice 1 and it will roll one dice
ChallengeHave a look at the Chinese New Year home challenge with your child. As we have already made a dragon model, I thought you might like to make a lucky fish. Attached below you will find the challenge and instructions
I wonder if your child can dance like a robot? I am sure we have a few.
Have fun and join in with the dance video Dance Like a Robot
Time to settle down and relax now. You have worked super hard today. Watch the Go Jetters Chinese New Year Dragon dance
Well, this has been a really tricky half term and Miss Edwards and I are extremely proud of all the children for taking part in our daily home learning. We have loved receiving emails from you grown-ups showing us your child’s super work, and the pictures you send really make us smile. We hope that you will all be able to get out for walks or visit the park during half term and we have set you a little holiday challenge. We would like you to go on a hunt for signs of spring. You can already see some now. Attached is a sheet for you to record what you see. Please have a fantastic half term, rest, look after yourselves, take care and keep smiling.
