During the week beginning 20th January, pupils learned about the Chinese New Year and how it was celebrated. Pupils worked to make different craft activities and present their work using different formats. Some pupils in the upper school used their computing lessons to make power point presentations about what they had learned about the Chinese New year.
On Friday 24th, pupils enjoyed participating in a Chinese Dance workshop. They used props for their dancing and learned about the importance of the dragon.
