Week 3

Chinese New Year!

This week the children have been learning about Chinese New Year. We have found China on a world map and discovered how Chinese New Year is celebrated across the world. The children especially enjoyed learning about Chinese dragon dancing! 


In Maths this week we have been learning how many different ways we can make 5. We have used the nursery rhyme 5 little speckled frogs to help us with this. For example, if there are 4 frogs on the log and 1 frog in the pool, that makes 5! You will find a video below of '5 Little Speckled Frogs'. You could watch this with your child and work out different ways of making 5. E.g. 5 is made of 4 and 1, 5 is made of 3 and 2 etc.
