Dragon Dancing

On Tuesday 31st January, as part of our learning about Chinese New Year, we were lucky enough to be visited by a professional dance teacher who taught us about dragon dancing.


Dragon dancing is traditional around the time of Chinese New Year and some of us learnt about the legend of Nian. Nian was a fearsome dragon of legend who would eat people every new year, until one old lady learnt that he was scared of the colour red and loud noises such as those made by firecrackers!


We all really enjoyed ourselves, and even our nursery group came and enjoyed the day with our Year 3 class!
