As a whole school we spent the last day of the half term (Thursday 11th February) learning all about Chinese New year. In Lions and Zebras class we learnt the story of how the zodiac years came about and how Chinese New Year is celebrated. We then did some writing about what we had learnt, made a Chinese dragon and practised writing our name in Chinese.
In Geography this half term Lions and Zebras have been comparing Ilfracombe to Accra, Ghana. We have been looking at landmarks in Ilfracombe, deciding whether they are human or physical features and finding them on a map.
Lions Class have been practising some Christmas songs today, using instruments to make the twinkly sounds. It was a fantastic time and the children played very enthusiastically! We tried really hard to hear the pulse of the songs and join in on the beat.
