Chinese New Year - Are you ready for the dragon dance?
Every child in Year 5 got to participate in celebrating the Chinese New Year through a music and dance workshop. It was amazing!
Everybody wore a read headband and kept a strong and steady rhythm on their instrument to start the dance. The pupils learnt about the history and traditions surrounding the Chinese New Year so they understood why they had to play so LOUDLY! There was drumming (to awaken the dragon), two pupils danced as the fearless Chinese Lion, and there was a long procession with the Chinese dragon, which can be seen in the photo up above.
A big thank you to everybody who came to watch our performance in the afternoon. We hope you enjoyed it as much as the pupils enjoyed participating.
