Happy Chinese New Year,

This week in Class Jonah we learnt about Chinese new year and the story of the animals. Then we made our own dragons by painting our hands and feet! We also had a new person join our Class and his name is Joshua.

In our topic this week we learnt about different types of jobs that people do when they work on buildings and we talked to Mrs Amies about her job as a Surveyor. We started our designs for our building day next week and thought about all the exciting things we would want in our dream house…Miss Irwin wants a swimming pool, cinema room and a pool table! πŸ™‚ We have also been practising our counting on in numbers sentences, we used duplo to make 2 small towers and then we put them together to see how big the tower was. We have learnt our sounds short ‘oo’ for book and ‘ar’ and getting really good at recognising them and writing them in words. Today we talked about who our special person was in our lives with Mrs Armitt and what makes us special.

Next week is a busy week for us as we have our first every Class Assembly on Wednesday morning and then straight after we have our building day ALL DAY!. ON wednesday we must come dressed as a builder or somebody who works on buildings eg. painter, plasterer, surveyor, estate agent. We need to be dressed up for assembly so we look good and also so we can make our houses really well. We will also be learning to make larger building with construction materials and looking our how things fit together.

On Wednesday it is also the school councils first ‘School Council Market’ day where they will be selling things on their stall that we can buy. They will be selling stationary, healthy snacks, cakes and a few more things. All money raised goes to the School Council and then to the projects in school they are supporting this year. Last Year they raised Β£50 for each class, which has been spent on playtime equipment as asked for by the children.

How you can help at home?
*Help us learn our class assembly song. Go to the blog to see the post ‘A wise man built his house”.
*Collect materials we can use to make our house for wednesday and discuss with us how and what we will be making.
*Help us to use our new sounds and words in sentences and spelling them in words.

Remember to dress up on WEDNESDAY!

Have a nice weekend
Miss Irwin and Miss Kippen
