Chinese New Year. We have had a brilliant time celebrating the Year of the Pig. We heard the story of The Great Race where animals took part in a competition to cross the river to have a year of the calendar named after them. We also practised writing Chinese characters and numbers and investigated some traditional Chinese artefacts. We had a lovely workshop in the hall where we learned a Chinese dance and took part in a dragon and lion parade. We have had the best time!
We have enjoyed coming back after the holidays and seeing all our friends. We have been learning about the seasons and traditional tales. We have been working hard on our reading, writing and numbers and have been developing lots of new skills, including subtraction and word building. We will be learning about stories such as The Three Little Pigs, Little Red Riding Hood, The Three Billy Goats Gruff and The Gingerbread Man. We hope all our grown ups will come and see what we've been doing on a Friday morning during our reading sessions!

Neptune class have enjoyed learning about traditional tales. We read the story of The Gingerbread Man and made some of our own. Some of them went missing when we put them in the oven, so we had to find a way to get them back. We wrote letters, made posters and traps and worked well as a team. We caught the fox and had our lovely gingerbread as a reward!
We enjoyed reading 'Owl Babies' and acting out parts of the story. We did lots of work around the story and loved making nests and owls for our Book Corner!
