Chinese new year is on the 19th February 2015, it is the year of the sheep or goat or the ram. Mr Simmons read the story of the great race and that every year was named after that animal. Each year is named after one of the 12 animals. They are rat, ox, tiger, rabbit,dragon, snake, horse,goat, monkey, rooster dog and pig. They are always in that order, so in 12 years time it will be the year of the sheep again.
Every child was given a love heart to look after in assembly, if you still have your love heart on Friday you will win a prize as you have shown that you know how to look after something.
Erin, Olivia, Mia, Alexia, Jake, Oscar G, Amelia, Jarren, Edward O, Amber, Rayah, Phoebe and Florence all produced this under the sea collage with Mrs. Pickavance in family groups today. We have put it up for all to see in the main entrance.
Mr Simmons shared some photos of people who have cared for him. We have been thinking about them during the week. We also remembered about caring for ourselves. Who have you cared for this week? Zoë has cared for her dog. Holly has cared for her brother and her cousin. Elizabeth has card for her sister. Amara has cared for her Mum. Mena has cared for Luca.
