Happy Chinese New Year! It’s the Year of the rat – those people who are born in this year (1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996 and 2008) are said to be industrious and thrifty, diligent and positive. They love to enshrine and collect. They have a keen intuition and can foretell the danger. Which year were you born in? This week we have lots of Chinese based activities planned and the children will have the opportunity to try Chinese food at snack times.

At home with your child
If you have been doing something interesting at home or visited somewhere at the weekend we would love to hear about it. You could jot a few words down that your child said, what you did and where you went, attach a photograph or an item you have collected e.g. an admission ticket, a flower. It doesn't have to be a lot. This week or weekend at home.pdf Copies also available in Pre-School.

We are very privileged to work with your fantastic children and we would like to share with you the things they tell us....
One of our children has a new cousin, they told us... "Did you know about C's baby? It popped out of her tummy and it had sellotape on it to close the hole and make it better"
A child was asked which were her favourite Minibeasts, "Beauty and the Beast" she answered.
As we were talking about our families one little boy said that in his family he had, "mummy, daddy, me and kitchens..."
