Chinese New Year Celebrations

Last Friday we finished off the week with some exciting learning about Chinese New Year. The children learned about the traditions of the festival and immersed themselves in the culture. We had a great time learning some Mandarin and even had a go at writing ‘good luck’ cards in this new language. The children were very brave and all had a go at eating some new foods that are often shared during this celebration. What a fantastic way to start the half term!

新年快乐

I really liked the Chinese food because it tasted really yummy! I enjoyed the story about how the animals got across the river.

Ways to help at home

  • Read every day
  • Practise your spellings and common exception words
  • As you read spot the sounds in words, can you find digraphs (two letters that make one sound) and trigraphs (three letters that make one sound)?
  • Count in 2s, 5s and 10s forwards and backwards
  • Learn your number bonds for all numbers to 20 (e.g number bonds to 7 are 1+6, 2+5, 3+4, etc.)
  • Practise telling the time to the hour, quarter past, half past, quarter to and as an extra challenge to 5 minute intervals (five past, ten past etc.)
  • Practise letter formation using the correct pencil grip and develop fine motor skills (peg pressing, picking pasta shells/rice with tweezers)
