In our assembly this week, LK2 listened to the story of how the years were named after the 12 different animals who had a race. Each year of the Chinese Zodiac is represented by a different animal: the rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog, and pig. 2013 is the year of the snake.
We also looked at various different Chinese traditions including how children were given red envelopes filed with coins.
To end our assembly we looked at our year of birth and worked out which animals we all are – our assembly was full of sheep, monkeys and roosters!
Miss Langley has taught us about Anger Mountain and how to use it to help us calm down when we feel worried or angry. It is based around knowing what has triggered your emotion off and then stopping yourself from getting to the peak of the mountain.
What strategies did Miss Langley teach you to help you calm down ?
