This week started with a bang as we had some visitors who bought a large drum and gong with them. They performed a Chinese lion dance for us in assembly and taught us all about the important colours in Chinese culture and why the lion dance is important. In the afternoon, we had a workshop with them where they showed us the lion costume in more detail and explained how to make the head work properly and how to stand if you are inside the costume. After this, we got to have a go! Some of us played the musical instruments to wake the lions up and the rest of us were inside the lions. It was really good fun, although scary when the lions came near us. Well done to Charlie M who was selected to play the gong in front of the whole school and parents at the end of the day.
