Our annual visit from Step Out Arts has arrived and the children really were thrilled with yet another series of sensational shows!
We kicked off with Lion and Ribbon Dances for groups of our morning children, then some children enjoyed a music workshop, exploring instruments we had never seen before.
After lunch there was more Lion and Ribbon Dance Workshops. The grand finale was a huge Lion Procession through the garden with our children joining the procession and leading at some points.
This day of celebration sits alongside children researching and finding out about Chinese New Year: the traditions and the festivities. Children will be cooking and sharing some Chinese food, reading the story of the Chinese Zodiac, exploring a number of Chinese artefacts and exploring Chinese calligraphy.
Here's to a year filled with love, health, prosperity and good luck for all.
