This is the year of the red monkey, the 9th animal in the 12 zodiac signs. Of the 5 elements applied to all zodiac signs, the monkey contains metal and fire. These elements are opposite elements so the prediction is that for the first half of the year, things can be very “up and done” so remain focus and weight your options. The second half of the year looks better and should therefore bring you more prosperous results!
So, welcome back and I really hope that you were able to relax and enjoy the week. I stayed in Shanghai and with my family and friends did daily “outings” such as going to Air Jump, going ice skating (without falling!), 3 games of lazer tag, indoor volleyball and go to the gym!
This week will be our last week of Health and Indoor Hockey. In PE classes we also need to complete the fitness testing. In Health, make sure to submit by next class the following: Grade 6: Food Plate Research Grade 8: Alcohol Lab
