Yellow Class


     KUNG HEI      FAT CHOY!!

        Happy New Year from Yellow Class!

We have had a very special visitor today - Oliver's Mummy from Blue Class.  She has helped us understand the customs and traditions that are celebrated at Chinese New Year...


Oliver's Mummy brought an amazing pop-up book to share with us, it told us all about why and how Chinese New Year is celebrated.  We spent all day making our own Chinese lanterns, acting out the story of how the years were named, building our own dancing dragons and much more.  We had a fantastic day!!


Thank you for coming to watch our nativity!

Our visit to Penge Library


On Thursday we took the minibuses to Penge library. The librarian told us all about the library and read us a couple of stories. We made bookmarks and chose some books to take back to school with us. We had a great time. 

                   People Who Help Us

As part of our topic on People Who Help Us we were lucky enough to have Zack's mum from Red Class visiting us on Monday 4th November. 


We held the key that opens the whole tube train and the key that starts the train.  She also gave us each a tube map and we found the green line that she drives on every day - the District line!  She gave us one very important piece of information too.  When you're waiting for a train always stand with your back against the wall, furthest away from the yellow line.  It was so exciting, thank you for coming to visit Reception!
'Celebrating Our Differences' Day
On Thursday 17th October, we dressed in clothes that represented our background, culture and heritage. We tried foods from different countries and did a parade to show off our outfits.
We have settled into school really well. We have been having lots of fun and made some new friends too!
