The children enjoyed a pancake treat to celebrate Shrove Tuesday. Nursery and Reception made their own pancake batter by weighing and mixing their ingredients in a bowl. They described the texture to decide if their batter needed more flour or water. Year 1 & 2 wrote instructions to make pancakes using 'bossy' imperative verbs and a numbered list, as well as a subheading for their ingredients list.
After Wednesday's swimming lessons, Reception and Infants have had a go at some Sudoku puzzles.
Over two weeks, Reception and Infants have looked at Bedtime poems for their English poetry topic. They explored the rhythm and use of rhyme in the poems. The children then made their own rhyming and non-rhyming poems based on what they had been reading.

Reception & Infants have been learning about the ways that people across the world celebrate and welcome the Lunar New Year.
The children were excited to find out which animal year they were born in, from the legend of the Chinese Zodiac. We have a mixture of noble horses, cheeky monkeys and a lucky rooster. 2022 is the year of the tiger
They have practised their chopstick skills with bells and pompoms and have painted intricate Chinese characters. The children also made colourful paper lantern decorations to bring good luck and keep negative energy at bay!
