Welcome back to Holly class page! The fun and the learning has continued here in Holly Class!
Holly Class had a fun filled day to celebrate Chinese New Year. All of our learning had a link to Chinese New Year!
In English, we learnt about the story of Chinese New Year and then answered some questions about what we had read.
In Maths we learnt about odd and even numbers and then coloured in some Chinese lanterns in yellow and red to show the different numbers.
In the afternoon, we had lots of fun making some beautiful stained glass fish which look lovely and colourful on the window in our classroom. Mrs Turrall also cooked up some delicious egg fried rice for us to eat. Lots of us thought it was yummy!
We were very lucky to have a visit from real life author and illustrator Chloe Inkpen who has written many fantastic books including the Zoe and Beans stories. Chloe spoke to us about her Dad who is well known author Mick Inkpen who created the character Kipper. She treated us to a sneak peak of her new book that has just been published ‘Hole in the Zoo’. It was a really fun story! Chloe also showed us some of her creative drawings and George from our class was lucky enough to be chosen to help do some colouring in!
Holly Class have been fortunate to have Mrs Hibbert (Trainee Teacher) with us on placement for the past 8 weeks. Mrs Hibbert has been great and sadly she is leaving us shortly. As part of her training, Mrs Hibbert has provided lots of great lessons for us. As part of our Maths, we have been learning about fractions and in English we have been making information booklets on the United Kingdom. As it is St David's Day shortly, Mrs Hibbert kindly linked Maths and English to provide the children with some Welsh cakes. We cut up the cakes into halves and then quarters to reinforce our learning on fractions. And of course we had a taste too!
Our library day is Monday.
We have PE on Tuesday & Thursday.
