This week has been a Valentines themed week.  We have learned all about Valentines Day, made love potions, used Love Heart Sweets to count and sort, talked about who we love and why and written Valentines cards to the special people in our lives.

In literacy, pupils have been using their writing skills to describe a tiger (with it being the year of the tiger) and write the different ways we prepare for and celebrate Chinese New Year.


In numeracy, children have been learning about directions.  They have engaged with the caterpillar and given it directions but have also been in the yard completing an obstacle course thinking about their directions.


In context lessons,  pupils have designed and made Chinese lanterns and Chinese envelopes and learnt of the purpose of each.
