On Friday the Nursery children had a lovely day celebrating Chinese New Year. We watched a special dragon dance on the white board, tired hard to use chopsticks and created some fabulous dragons. Can anyone remember what colour is lucky?
After lunch Mrs Moss cooked a fabulous stir fry for us all to taste.
Hope you all have a fabulous half term with your families.
Gong Hei Fat Choy everybody! The children in Reception learnt lots about Chinese New Year and even had a taste of China with noodles in soy sauce. We made Chinese dragons, lanterns and wrote special fortune messages to our family. Can you remember what is special about the colour red?
The children in Reception loved tasting pancakes this morning. Thank you to Mrs Sawyer for making them. Which topping do you like on yours?
Year 2 have had a fantastic day today. This morning, we made pancakes which tasted delicious. Then we wrote a set of instructions on how to make pancakes and finally this afternoon, we took part in lots of pancake races! Well done to our winners who dashed across the hall in record time!
Today in Reception, the children have loved learning all about Diwali, the Hindu Festival of Lights. We have discussed the many traditions that take place during Diwali and have watched a little girl called Jessica celebrate Diwali with her family. The children have learnt that during Diwali many lights are lit and that many of these lights come from diva lamps. Today we’ve made and decorated our own diva lamps using salt dough, created our own paper lanterns and we’ve had a go at writing out some Diwali cards. What a lovely day!
A big thank you to all the parents, carers and friends of the children who came to watch our assembly this morning!
But most of all a GREAT BIG Thank You to all of the children who have been practicing their lines all week!
Year 1 celebrated Jewish New Year this week. During Rosh Hashanah it is traditional to dip apple in honey to wish everyone a sweet and happy new year. Did you know the pomegranate is said to have 613 seeds which is the number of good deeds in the Torah?
