This week we have been learning about Chinese New Year. An evil spirit visited us but we scared him away with red and gold and loud noises. We have set up our own Chinese restaurant, the children are writing each others orders down and then cooking for them. In ‘Talk for Writing’ we have read ‘The Magic Paintbrush’ about Shen and the Emperor. We have written messages to go in fortune cookies, we have retold the story with characters and using our own magic paintbrush we have found amazing things.
In maths we have been adding two numbers together to find a total (addition) and taking a group away from another to find a total (subtraction). We had a visitor on Tuesday, ‘Dave’ came in to visit us, he showed how we can draw a range of things using lines. We drew an elephant, cat and many more. One of our pictures started with a box and we built it into a house with a car outside, a gate and flowers in our garden.
