This week we have been learning all about Lunar New Year and how it is celebrated in different parts of the world. We have been exploring life in ancient China and how the social class systems were structured. We have made our own lanterns and were gifted a hong bao by one of our classmates.
Next week we will be making a guitar in our science lesson, this will help us really explore how sound waves work and how the vibrations are transferred. Shoeboxes or tissue boxes along with long kitchen roll tubes would be really helpful so that we can all build one!
It is really important that the children are reading 3x a week, the book that is levelled from accelerated reader. It is lovely for me to see in their reading record that they have read other books too!
Spelling lessons next week will focus on the suffix ‘ful’. How many words can you find that have the suffix ful?
The children have worked hard to develop their 3-, 4- and 8-times tables. Times Table Rockstars is really helping those who are accessing it, so please encourage the children to use it if you have the time.
Have a lovely weekend and 新年快乐!
