Due to the ongoing pandemic and children learning from home, we have been taking a different approach to teaching focusing on a recovery curriculum and theme based learning. Set topics we had originally had in place to go ahead for this academic year have been put on hold and we are following the children's needs and interests, whilst promoting skills linked to history where appropriate. The whole school have been learning about Chinese New Year, looking at the culture and festivals that take place, whilst learning about the history of their beliefs. To support our enquiry based learning, we wrote a range of questions to ask someone who lives in China regarding the Chinese New Year, their traditions and general information. We arranged for a student from China to meet with the whole school via a live teams meeting, where we were shown a presentation about the Chinese Luna New Year and how this was originated. We found out lots of interesting information which supported our learning, whilst being able to celebrate Chinese New Year.
