CHINA

CHINA

Locate China on a world map and learn about Chinese facts and traditions. Have a go at Chinese multiplication and learn about a recent Earhquake in China. 2 assemblies also included (a teacher led whole-school assembly AND a class assembly). Why not learn some Tai Chi too ... I’ve attached a simple Tai Chi routine (accompanied by some relaxing music).
