Class 2 have a wormery!

As part of our Science topic of Living things, we have a wormery in the classroom complete with around 40 Tiger (composting) worms. The aim is to observe how they live under the ground and hopefully, move them into a composting bin after 4 weeks.

The children really enjoyed spending time looking at the wormery, and trying to spot where they were hiding. We looked at some of the trails they had made already.

Can you spot any?IMG_2157 IMG_2158

Class 2 celebrate Chinese New Year.

As part of our topic on China, Class 2 have been learning about the traditions of a Chinese New Year. They have made red envelopes, but instead of putting money or sweets inside, they wrote messages to each other. In keeping with the tradition of not opening the envelopes in the presence of the giver, the children have taken them home to read.  We also made lanterns.

Chinese New Year Festival – Sunday 3rd February 2019

In Newport on Sunday, there is a Chinese New Year festival being held on the cobbled street. There will be a dragon dancing display, as well as other activities to celebrate the Chinese New Year. It is free!

As Class 2’s topic is China, this might be a lovely way for them to experience some Chinese culture.

It starts at 12 noon and runs throughout the afternoon until 6pm. There will also be different stalls selling various items too.

Hope to see you there.
