Chinese New Year 2017 - Year of the Rooster

3rd February 2017

As part of their multi-cultural/SMSC education studies, KS3 students celebrated Chinese New Year on 06.02.17.  The students had a taster of four different activities- 


  • They studied thought provoking Chinese Maths led by Mr Town. 
  • All the students created a surface using willow and tissue paper and then learnt how to write their horoscopes in Chinese.  
  • Mr Turner and Mr Trower taught the students how to make Chinese badges using ideas from their horoscopes. 
  • Mrs Hamilton and Miss Collis taught the students how to make Chinese dishes.


At the end of our day the groups came together to taste the Chinese food prepared by the pupils as well as discussing what they had made. 


I would like to give a big thank you to all staff for working so hard to make this a successful day.
