Chinese New Year

This week we have been celebrating Chinese New Year in the Library. We have stories about China for all classes…

This year, Chinese New Year – The Year of the rat, officially begins on 25th January.
FUN FACT:  The largest migration of human beings in the world is underway in China as hundreds of millions of citizen’s journey home to family for the holiday. In London, the Chinese New Year Parade sets off in Chinatown at 10am on 26th January, ending at Trafalgar Square where there will be a free performance for all!

Children loved identifying their animal from the Chinese zodiac in library sessions this week. Well done to all of the children who sent in stories for the Daunt Story Competition. Keep them coming- deadline 20th February (see earlier post for details). Stories read aloud to classes this included…
