Chinese New Year 2020
Classes 4M and 5B were lucky enough to visit The Whitworth Art Gallery on Friday (Chinese New Year's Eve) in celebration of Chinese New Year, which this year 2020, is year of the rat.
After a lovely walk to the gallery, the children took part in various Chinese New Year themed activities and watched some very impressive performances from an Arts company who had flown over all the way from China!
Performances included: hat juggling, lion dancing, acrobats, singing, diabolo and many more! We were blown away by the performers talents and captivated by the elaborate costumes and props. The children even got to have a go at walking with the huge, light up dragon with some of the performers! :)
As well as the wonderful performances the children had the opportunity to have a go at the art of paper cutting - a traditional Chinese art activity. I was very impressed with the children's cutting skills and concentration - there were some brilliant concentrating faces! :D
4M were extremely well behaved throughout the whole of the day and have done myself, Wilbraham Primary School and most importantly themselves proud!
A huge thank you to all the adults involved especially Ms. Hulston, Mrs Richard and Ms. Ahmed for organising and joining us on such a wonderful trip!
Well done 4M, Miss Mckibben is one very happy teacher. Have a great weekend and see you Monday :)
