We had a nice normal day after our very busy week. We did our own contemporary dance after lunch with newspapers and chairs. We all tried to remember what the dance teacher had shown us and made a dance out of our favourite bits.
We had a taster session with Jo Jingles after lunch. We did lots of different songs and activities from around the world.
We walked to the Down Arts Centre today to see a contemporary Dance performance. It was really good and very different. We then stayed on to do a dance workshop where we used some of the same props and learnt parts of the dances which we performed to the same music. Our school camera battery died so we unfortunately didn't take any pictures but all the children could describe their favourite part of the dance.
We had our individual photographs taken today. We were all very happy and smiley and our photos are GORGEOUS!
Kung Hei Fat Choi! We all wore our lucky red clothes to school. We practiced using chopsticks by eating little crisps. We enjoyed cheerios for our snack. We played with red toys and had red water in the tray. We listened to Chinese music and practiced our dragon dance. We met Kim who came from visiting her grandparents in Hong Kong. She was our guest of honour at our special meal. We ate prawn crackers with our chopsticks and then all tasted vegetable stir fry with noodles for our lunch snack. After lunch we all had a turn to take part in our parade as musicians, jugglers, flag wavers and dragon dances. At home time we got a red envelope of lucky money and a fortune cookie. There are photos of our special day in the archive.
We finished our clever hand sewn heart cards today. After lunch we took turns to dress in the wedding clothes and did "proper" dancing. We did the waltz, Cha cha, Tango and Quick step!!!
We are enjoying the new wedding theme in the play house. We even had help from the students to put on a bit of make up. We also love all the jewellery we have to choose from.
We made rice crispie cakes for Steven's birthday snack today. We started work on our valentines cards too.
At last we went on our snowdrop walk (having postponed it twice before). We listened to the birds in the grove and we were sad to see how much litter there was. We will have to return one day with our litter pickers. There are photos of our walk in the archive.
Mini came to tell us about the people who help us. The photos are in the archive.
