Zao a! Morning!

Today I learnt lots about Mrs Zhou's family and the Chinese culture. If you have any questions about Chinese language then please email Mrs Zhou to help you. Yesterday we were hungry for some sushi so we made a short video incase you wanted to try and make some at home. I hope you give it a try.  Zai jian, Miss Young.
