What sounds have you learnt so far this week? Can you think of a word that begins with each of them?

 

Literacy:

 

This Friday it is Chinese New Year. When people celebrate Chinese New year they hang decorations. One of those decorations are lanterns.  Today we want you to make and decorate your own paper lantern.

 

Today we are going to follow instructions to make a paper lantern.

 

Today we want you to follow instructions to make your own paper lantern. We’ve attached the instructions. You can also watch them being made here:

If you don’t have a stapler at home, you can use glue or Sellotape instead. Think carefully about each instruction as you will be writing them soon.  

Maths:

 

Today we are going to be learning about the days of the week. We are going to start off with a story, all about ‘The Perfect Square’. Have a look at today’s video to find out more by clicking here.

 

For your activity today, we would first like you to tell your grownup the days of the week in order. Don’t worry if you need a little bit of practice at doing this! Once you have ordered the days, write them down on a piece of paper. We would like you to draw a little picture of something that you have done/might be doing on each day (if you want to, you could make your pictures into a story, just like the one we read). Then, using your pictures to help you, have a think about the following questions:  

 

  • What day is it today?
  • What have you done today?
  • What day was it yesterday?
  • What did you do yesterday?
  • What day is it tomorrow?
  • What are you going to do tomorrow?

 

We are going to finish off today by having a look at two songs. The first one you have seen before, so we hope that you can join in! It’s called ‘Days of the Week’:

The second one is called ‘Today is Monday’, and is illustrated by our class author Eric Carle! Have a listen once or twice to familiarise yourself with the words, and then see if you can sing along:

Topic:

 

This week we have been learning about Chinese New Year. Today we are going to learn how to write some Chinese symbols. Chinese is a language like English. In the Chinese language they have pictures which stand for different words and sounds. These pictures have been drawn for many years and are called Chinese characters. Chinese characters often came from drawing pictures like this:

 

 

You can use a pencil, chalk, a felt tip, a crayon or a paintbrush to practise these. Watch this clip below to learn some Chinese symbols. They also say the word. See if you can say the word like they do.

For Chinese New Year, symbols of good wishes are drawn and coloured in. These are then given to others to wish them good things for the future. We’ve attached a picture of the symbol for love and the symbol for friendship for you to colour in and give to people who are special to you. If these people are not in your house, maybe your grown up could take a picture of the symbol when you’ve coloured it in and send it to them.
