Year of the Dragon

9th February 2024
We had an energetic creative arts afternoon inspired by the Chinese New Year and the Year of the Dragon.  The children were given a choice in creating their own dragons, choosing between clay modelling, card or paper crafts or drawing.  We also learned about the story of The Great Race which explains the 12 animals of the Chinese Zodiac as well as watching examples of dragon dances.  The children interviewed our school dragon and then had a go at some dragon dancing themselves.
