'Monkey Day' at Went Valley

WELCOME TO THE YEAR OF THE MONKEY!
I am the seasoned traveler
Of the Labyrinth.
The genius of alacrity,
Wizard of the impossible.
My brilliance is yet unmatched
In its originality.
My heart’s filled with potent magic
That could cast a hundred spells.
I am put together
For mine own pleasure
I AM THE MONKEY.

Happy New Year!

The children had a great morning celebrating the Chinese New Year - the Year of The Monkey.

They made excellent chicken and sweetcorn soup with Mrs Blakeston and painted monkey masks with Miss White. They also enjoyed listening to stories and singing songs with Mrs Beck.

At snack time instead of our usual snacks we all tried oriental foods (thank you for your kind donations).

To round off the morning all the children were given their very own fortune cookie, pair of chopsticks and money envelope.

We all had a great time and we can't wait for the 'Year of the Rooster'!
