Most importantly we have been learning how to share, how to look after each other and how to do good listening. We get stickers for good behaviour such as good sitting and listening on the carpet, looking after our friends, tidying up the classroom and sharing our toys and resources.

We have been celebrating Chinese New Year

We have made a Chinese dragon head after watching videos of the traditional Dragon Dance.

We put the head on when it was dry and did our own dragon dance!

We also wrote shopping lists for stir fry ingredients and went to Sainsbury’s. We used our shopping lists to buy all the ingredients we needed.

We took the vegetables back to class and prepared them. We used knives to cut up our ingredients so we had to be very careful! We made sure to wash our hands before touching the food so that it would be safe to eat. When the stir fry was being cooked we kept a safe distance away from the oven, so as to keep ourselves safe. It smelled delicious!

 When we had washed our hands we sat down to eat our stir fry. It was so yummy and was full of vegetables so it was really healthy.

On March 3rd we celebrated World Book Day! Lots of children came to school dressed up as their favourite book character. Ms Asprey came as Fantastic Mr Fox, Ms Garcia came as Batman and Mrs Osei was Handa from Handa’s Surprise!

We read some of our favourite stories on the carpet…

…Had fun telling stories in the story tent…
