I would like you to look at the Chinese alphabet symbols below and have a go at writing your name in Chinese!


See if you can write your whole name – look at how the letters are different in Chinese to the letters we write.


As a challenge see if you can write the name of someone else in your house! See what different symbols/letters are used.


Don’t forget to send us a photo of your Chinese name writing and we can ‘Shout about it’!




Please watch the RWI video clips below about how to read Green Word Time 1.7 words and how to spell them for writing. We have placed an exercise book in your home learning packs, which will help you to write the words in so you can see your progress and hard work. 


Reading the words -


There is no spelling video but I would like you to have a go at writing some of the words mentioned in the reading video.




Today we are going to be learning about how during Chinese New Year celebrations, children are sometimes given envelopes with money inside!


Today I would like you to go on a coin hunt and find as many different coins in your house as you can – you may need adult help with this. With an adult, look at some coins and see if you can see any numbers on them. What numbers can you see? What shape are the coins? What colours are they?


Can you draw any of the coins you have found? Can you make any coin rubbings? – Simply put a coin under a piece of paper and use a wax crayon/crayon to rub over the top of the coin, you should start to see the impression of the coin showing through which will make your coin rubbing.


I would also like you to log onto Numbots (See link below) and have a go at playing in Story Mode. This is a great online game for you to practice your counting, addition and subtraction skills!

Today in RE we are going to be thinking about the key features of a Baptism, who are the key people involved and what are the important objects/things used.


I would like you to watch the video of the Baptism and think about the most important parts of the ceremony.   


Then I would like you to draw a Baptism scene and add in key words to label the important features. For example, parents, baby, godparents, font, holy water, candle, priest.


Remember to use your phonics to help you spell the key words.

Have a lovely half term everyone!


We hope to see you all very soon.
