P2 Homework W/B 8.2.16



year of the monkey

We will be learning about Chinese New Year this week. One of our parents, Wei, has kindly offered to come in over a few afternoons and has organised some fun and informative activities for the children. Wei has already been into school  and has told the children all about the story behind Chinese New Year. The class then made a large Chinese Zodiac display.

So, this coming week, children will be making lanterns, learning to write some Chinese characters, helping to decorate the class, making dragons and also making, cooking and tasting pork dumplings.

Thank you Wei!

Other events  this week:

Tuesday – drumming

Thursday and FridayPE as usual.

Homework this week:

Reading – we will continue with our ORT books but there will also be an additional ‘Reading for Information’ task sent home. This is a sheet about the ‘Year of the Monkey‘. Please assist your child as necessary.

Spelling/handwriting – this week the sound focus is ‘ew‘.

Numeracy – Two tasks to try!

  1. Sumdog Challenge – ‘P2 Round Up Challenge’ This covers a variety of themes covered so far. 100 points to collect.
  2. Chinese Dragon Maths Game‘ – search for ‘Top Marks Chinese New Year‘ online. Scroll down to the box titled ‘Chinese New Year Activities’. At the top, you should see the dragon game.
