Happy New Year!

Today we said Gung Hay Fat Choy (Happy New Year in Chinese). After an assembly which told the story of the 12 different animals in the Chinese Calendar, we learnt that 2016 is the Year of the Monkey. All classes spent the day taking part in different activities. These included, Kingfishers Class learnt how to write in Chinese and made a Chinese Dragon as well as tasting some delicious Chinese food, Woodpeckers class made some Chinese lanterns and were thinking about their number bonds (Chinese style), Owls class took on the role of one of the animals and had some races; they then recorded their results and made bar charts using a range of PE equipment and Swans class wrote some beautiful descriptions of a Chinese street scene and learnt how to write numbers using Chinese Symbols.
