Dear North Tawton Families,

Chinese New Year
In assembly this week, I told a story of how the Chinese Zodiac was invented. The Jade Emperor organised a race for all the animals. 12 animals showed up to the starting line. The emperor said that each animal who came would all have a year named after them, the race was to determine the order. Ask your children how the animals approached the race, in particular the river they had to cross. Why didn’t the dragon win and why is there not a Year of the Cat? We had fun acting out the story in assembly.
You can find out your year and what that might mean here: https://kids.kiddle.co/Chinese_Zodiac
Happy Chinese New Year in Mandarin: 恭喜发财 “gong-sshee faa-tseye” and in Cantonese: 恭喜發財 “gong-hey faa-chwhy.”
Our Year 5 and Year 6 cross country team were fantastic on Friday. They showed incredible team work, perseverance and high spirits. We are so proud of them and their sporting attitude. Well done!
If your child in KS1 or KS2 would like to have music lessons, strings, piano or singing, please contact the office or Miss Boyce.
