Chinese New Year Lion Dance

During the first week of Term 4, we had a visit from the University of Bristol Chinese Lion Dancing Group. The whole school were able to watch them perform and explain to us how the Lion Dance is used to celebrate Chinese New Year. A lot of parents and younger siblings came to watch as well.

Many thanks to the PTA for organising and paying for the event.

Please see the photos below to see how much we enjoyed it and how impressive it was.

Christingles and Jumpers

The term ended with a Christmas Jumper Day where everyone wore a festive jumper to add to the pre Christmas celebrations.

A Christingle Assembly was held at the end of the day. Every child had made their own Christingle which were all lit to add to the atmosphere in the hall. Some Year 2 children read about the history of the Christingle and each year group sang a song from their nativity or concert. It was an excellent way to celebrate Christmas before we all went home.

Merry Christmas to all!

We painted self-portraits. We looked carefully in the mirror at our different skin, hair and eye colours and experimented with colour mixing. We are learning to select colours for a specific purpose and to make darker and lighter shades of a colour. We also tried to control our paintbrushes carefully so that we were able to fill in the shapes that we had drawn. We are now enjoying spotting similarities and differences between ourselves and our friends.
