Reception Term 3 2019

At Parents' Evening, you asked for the rhymes we use to help the children with writing numbers and letters and the Jolly Phonics actions. Here they are. If you would paper copies please ask in the office. They will be happy to print them out for you.
We love learning about other peoples cultures, celebrations and festivals. Today we're finding out about Chinese New Year.
It's the start of the Year of the Pig.
We have been cooking and eating tasty, wholewheat noodles (with chopsticks!), making money envelopes, trying out chinese writing, making lanterns, colouring dragons and learning about all the different animal years. 
One little girl in Puffins brought in her Year of the Horse medallion, specially made for her on a trip to Hong Kong! Another brought in a very special Chinese calendar.
