Today we are going to continue our learning about Chinese New year.


I would like you to use Google/a search engine online to research what year you were born in and what Chinese animal was the focus that year.


Once you have found out your Chinese Zodiac animal, I would like you to draw it, label and it write a sentence to explain what animal it is.


For example: I was born in _____. My animal is a _____.


Remember to use your phonics to help you write your sentences, as well as adding capital letters, finger spaces and full stops.




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 the mathematical concept of One More than.


I would like you to work through the power point (see below) and try your best to work out what is 1 more than each number shown.


Can you draw a number line to help you work the answer out? By jumping 1 more number on the number line you will be able to work out the answer.


I would then like you to have a go at the One More than dice game.


If you don’t have a dice, you can write numbers 1-6 on pieces of paper and pull them out of a hat/bag or simply ask an adult or other person in your house to call out a number 1-6 randomly.


If you don’t have access to a printer, you can simply draw the dice game shown on a piece of paper yourself to keep it accessible and simple. J




Today for our second topic lesson on Chinese New Year, I would like you to create a Chinese paper lantern.


For this activity you will need, paper, colouring crayons/felt tip pens, glitter (optional), scissors and glue.


I have put the instructions below and an example of the template you will need to make your lantern.


If you don’t have access to a printer, simply draw out the template onto a piece of paper for your child to cut out and create – you don’t need to print it out!


Try to make your Chinese lanterns as colourful as you can and remember to send us photos of your wonderful lanterns to add to our ‘Shout about it’ area on the webpage!




For our music lesson today, I would like you to watch the video (see link below) and watch Miss Ridley teach you the ‘My School’ song that we all know – see how many words and actions you can remember.


Have fun!
