Oodles of noodles in P2A

We’ve had lots of fun in P2A this week!

On Monday our P6 Pals came to play games with us. They designed and made the games themselves, we were very impressed. The games had bulbs that lit up when we got the answer correct. We can’t wait until we’re in P6 and can learn how to make our own games!

We LOVED our trip to the park on Tuesday…

On Wednesday we learned about Chinese New Year. We learned that in China people traditionally use chopsticks instead of a knife and fork. We had a go at using chopsticks to eat noodles; Mrs Bell and Miss Devonshire were very impressed with our resilience, it was tricky but we kept trying! To celebrate Chinese New Year, Chinese people have their fortunes told. We made our own fortune tellers and decorated them with red as that is a lucky colour in Chinese culture.

In Maths this week we continued with our learning on multiplication. We are all doing very well with this and have a good understanding – we are able to show multiplication sums in lots of different ways:

Here’s a song we’ve been learning to help us to remember the 2 times tables:

In Phonics we have been working hard to spell our common words correctly. We can all spell word, world and little correctly.

For our Victorians focus this we learned about the jobs Victorian children did. We were very interested in the chimney boys. Did you know that children as young as 5 went up the chimneys?! We know lots about chimney boys; next week we will use this information to write a diary entry as a chimney boy.

Have a great weekend when it gets here.

Love P2A and Mrs Bell x
