Traditional Chinese Dance Workshop for Year 2

Year 2 children ended their cross curricular topic about China with a dance workshop. Our visitor, Hannah, led the children in a number of traditional Chinese dances and the children loved the opportunity to work with fans, parasols and finally…the lion and dragon costumes! The children were put into three groups, and each group learnt a piece of choreography that included their particular prop. Once all three groups had practised, each part of the dance was performed together, at the same time to some traditional Chinese music. We were so proud of the children for their teamwork, and for showing our school values. Hannah commented on how impressed she was, not just with the final routine, but with how well the children listened, followed instructions and gave their all to the performance! Well done everyone, what great ambassadors! A very fun way to end the topic and the half term! Thank you so much to all the parents and carers who were able to make donations to allow this enrichment activity to take place.
