I hope you had a lovely weekend and are ready for our last week of home learning before we all enjoy a good rest over half term. I have planned some exciting activities for you to enjoy this week, we will be learning all about Chinese New Year and starting to think about the preparations for Easter, which start during our weeks holiday.
It was lovely to catch up with most of you on the telephone last week and hear all about the activities you are doing at home. It sounds like your parents are continuing to be wonderful teachers. Thanks again for all your continued hard work and support.
During this lockdown it can be hard to be stuck inside 🌧 So we have decided to give you all a little challenge...
Reading is a great way to break up all of your hard work with online learning and a chance to look after our well-being with some ‘quiet time’. When we can’t visit our local libraries or read in our comfy corners in our classrooms, then it is time to get creative!
Whether it is building a fort, reading outside or even upside down, let’s see which ‘unusual places’ you can find to read in.
Upload your photo to the blog by the first Monday back after half term for your chance to win a prize in this challenge.
I can't wait to see all of your photographs.
See you all tomorrow, lots of love Mrs Wright xx

Read this story together:
Thomas had not been able to go to Nursery (school) for ages because the schools were closed for lockdown. He had not liked that very much at all. He had enjoyed being at home at first and having Mum for a teacher, but she was often busy and had to do her own work. She wasn’t as patient as Miss Taylor and Mrs Whelan were and wouldn’t let him play outside as much as he wanted to. He was fed up with being at home now! The snow had been exciting for a bit, but it had soon vanished, and he was bored. He hadn’t been able to play football with his team on Saturdays either or go to the soft play centre. The worst thing about not being able to go to Nursery (school) was not being with the other children. Thomas had felt all alone. He had no brothers or sisters and Emma and Joe, his friends from Nursery (school), were not allowed to come to his house to play anymore. Thomas was excited about the time when schools would finally be open again. He was looking forward to playing in the sand with Joe, doing puzzles with Emma and sharing a game on the climbing frame.
Knowledge and Understanding the World
This week sees the start of the celebrations for Chinese New Year, many people around the world will be looking forward to the festivities, with New Years Day being on Saturday 12th February this year. We will be finding out about how people prepare for the festival, the types of food they may eat, the parties they may enjoy and the dances they take part in.

I hope you enjoy all of your activities this week and I can't wait to see you all on Monday morning.

Love Mrs Wright xx
