Spring 1: week 6

We have had a lovely last week to finish off this half term. Our theme has been Chinese New Year and we really enjoyed looking at everyone's show and tell items:

In Literacy and Understanding the world we listened to the Chinese New Year story.
We also looked at dragon and lion dances, clothes, traditions, food, music and decorations:

In maths we looked at number bonds to 10. By the end of the week we were number bond superstars. Please continue to practise these with your child at home.

The children have all continued to do extremely well this half term. We hope you all have a restful and enjoyable half term.
