Our new topic is ........Dancing Dragons

We will be starting this half term by looking at Chinese New Year. New Year's day is traditionally marked by dragon and lion dancing and we will have a whole day workshop on Monday 16th January to learn these culminating in a performance for the whole school.

There will be a strong emphasis on Geography this half term as we learn about the food, clothes, festivals, weather, landscape and animals of China.

In Literacy we will be looking at some gorgeous picture books which are set in China and we will use these to help us to use time connectives to sequence events in stories and recounts and to begin to use some common verb suffixes such as -ed and -ing accurately in our own writing. We will read plenty of information books too and we will create our own mini fact books about China. Lastly we will study and write poems about Chinese festivals.

In ICT we will be learning to combine words with pictures, sounds and animations to create our own ebooks which tell the story of how the animals were chosen for the Chinese Zodiac.

In maths we will be learning to to add, subtract numbers up to 20, place value of numbers up to 50 and measuring length, height, weight and volume.
