Lanterns and Firecrackers by Jonny Zucker

Hello everyone!

This week’s story is about Chinese New Year.  It’s a short story, giving the children a sense of the celebration.  Please check on the Whole School Blog to see two videos made by a very good friend of mine who was happy to share her experiences with the children.   It’s always been a great pleasure to celebrate with her and her family and hope you enjoy.

Here is a link to some activities and below is the story of The Great Race and explains why years are named after animals.

Until next time, do good looking for adventures, clean your ears out for good listening and turn your noggins (brains) on for good learning.

Take care and stay safe, 

Mrs Howe, Mrs Bain, Mrs Mitzman, Mrs Hill and Mrs Bence
