This week we are learning all about Chinese New Year! We found out it was the year of the rat and that all the children were born in either the year of the sheep (2015), monkey (2016) or the rooster (2017). There was lots of fun activities that taught us about Chinese New Year, we made lanterns and our own money wallets and found out they have to be red as that is their lucky colour. We tried some noodles and some of us even tried a prawn cracker. It has been lots of fun!
In assembly, Miss Ward made an Epiphany Cake. Our class VIP was chosen to break a piece of the sweet-bread cake open. To our surprise we suddenly saw a figure of baby Jesus! We all had a taste of the sweet bread too. It was delicious!
Reception class have been reading the story ‘Message in a bottle’ by Matt Hunt. The children have written their very own message in a bottle, and put them in the water tray. We have been writing using our phonics knowledge all by ourselves!
