For Chinese New Year, the whole school were invited to take part in a very special Chinese lion dancing workshop. The children all had the opportunity to be a part of the lion (and in some cases the head!) in order to enthral their audience with moving the lion's body, ears and mouth to bring good luck to others for the year ahead, without frightening them. While the performers danced, the rest of the children had to encourage the lions awake with rhythmical clapping and then send the lions back to sleep by clapping softly.
Roman Soldier visits Year 4!
On Thursday 14th November, a Roman soldier visited year 4 in order to tell them all about what life was like in the Roman army. Year four were able to feel the weight of the shield, look closely at Ancient artefacts and practice marching, with instructions given in Latin.
