Topic Lesson

Learning title: My Favourite State in the USA  

This is our last 'Road Trip to the USA' topic lesson and each one of you have completed some amazing work over the term. Your first task today is to draw the USA flag. Once you have done this, I would like you to choose a US state which you have enjoyed learning about this term and then inside your USA flag , write down why this is your favourite state? Try to give as many reasons as you can. For example, Florida is my favourite state because of the many tourist attractions  and famous landmarks.

Chinese New Year lesson

Learning Objective: to explore Chinese New Year celebrations

Your first task for this lesson is to go through PowerPoint 1 and 2 below. These PowerPoints explain how China celebrates their New Year.  Once you have done this, your activity is to write down the similarities and differences between Chinese New Year celebrations and the New Year celebrations here in England (UK) using the template below (underneath both PowerPoints). 

For example, one similarity is that both countries use fireworks to celebrate New Year's.
