Weare Academy pupils celebrated Chinese New Year with a visit from a Chinese dragon! All the children took part in a series of dance workshops throughout the day, on Tuesday 2nd February. They learnt all about the dragon, what it symbolises and how to express the character of the dragon through dance and drama.
Our children were particularly keen to wear the dragon head and they performed a special dance of the dragon dancing through a 'street of children'. Everyone joined in with great enthusiasm!
The session also included a short tai chi session to close the workshop. The children were taught how to move, pose and hold positions for a tree and a rooster. Please enjoy our colourful photos from Year Four.
