Kung Hei Fat Choi!

Lucky cat visits the bumblebees!

Itโ€™s Chinese New Year and even more excitingly, the Lunar New Year!

Weโ€™ve found out that those born in 2014 are the year of the horse & those born in 2015 are the year of the goat! What year are you?

Weโ€™ve done lots of creative activities and we even got to do our own races like in the story of the Chinese zodiac! Weโ€™ve also learnt how to say Happy New Year in Cantonese! (see title)


๐Ÿ ๐Ÿณ๐ŸšOur Under the Sea scenes ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿณ๐Ÿš

Dive into our lovely sea scenes. We have been busy making these under water scenes using lots of different materials. We used paint and blue materials for the sea, pasta shells, tissue paper for the coral and seaweed then we added sea animals too. These scenes turned out very colourful, exactly like the coral reefs.


A plea for cereal and shoe boxes…

In Reception, we will be building our own aquarium filled with sea creatures and objects. We ask for children to bring in a cereal box, shoe box (or anything of similar size) so we can start building them! Please put your name on the box.

A frosty morning โ„๏ธ

Writing our names in the condensation!

This morning, Bumblebess has a frosty walk, taking in and appreciating the crisp cold, the foggy field and the sun through the clouds!

We wrote out name in the frost and got super icy fingers!

Weโ€™re hoping for some snow very soon ๐Ÿคž


Fish fun in Maths!

In maths we have been looking at the concept of ‘one more and less‘. The children drew fishes in the fish bowls to show ‘One more and one less, they rolled the dice, drew that amount and then added one more or rubbed one out to show one less.

We also moved on to simple addition, counting across two groups. The children first rolled then dice, counted out the objects into each hoop, then they counted the fish altogether to find the total.
