Thought of the Week: Year of the Ratchinesenewyear

The Rat is the first of all zodiac animals. According to one myth, the Jade Emperor said the order would be decided by the order in which they arrived to his party. The Rat tricked the Ox into giving him a ride. Then, just as they arrived at the finish line, Rat jumped down and landed ahead of Ox, becoming first.

The Rat is also associated with the Earthly Branch (地支—dì zhī) Zi (子) and the midnight hours. In the terms of yin and yang (阴阳—yīn yáng), the Rat is yang and represents the beginning of a new day.

In Chinese culture, rats were seen as a sign of wealth and surplus. Because of their reproduction rate, married couples also prayed to them for children.

Students from Year 9 were treated to a round-robin of activities today at Keele University’s ‘Totally Awesome English’. Pupils learned about ‘erasure’ poetry, using creative methods to pick out key words from the text. Next up, was a thrilling criminal ‘whodunnit’ using different reading skills to identify the guilty suspect. Following the action-packed morning of creative word-design and CSI-style solving, pupils then explored the art of storytelling. To finish the day, cultural writing was examined and students tackled the challenging ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ as part of their task. The year 9 students are to be commended on their behaviour and conduct: they represented CCSC wonderfully.
