What is joy? 

What makes you joyful?

Talk with your grown up.

In Cubs we love to learn about other cultures, and especially about celebrations. In November last year we learnt about the Hindu festival of Diwali, and we absolutely loved it! Then we learned about the Christmas story,

On Friday 12th February it will be Chinese New Year,

This week we are learning a little bit about China ready to have a celebration on the 12th February to finish off our Topic for this term.
