Chinese New Year Enrichment Day

Our whole school was involved in an enrichment day in February around the theme of Chinese New Year.

The children and staff came to school dressed either in costumes to do with their Chinese zodiac animal or their lucky colour. This was Ross Murray’s brilliant idea who then researched it and made a table so everyone could work out their animal or their colour.

Each class carried out activities in their classrooms related to Chinese New Year including decorating circles for our Chinese dragon display.

Our sixth form students made some delicious Chinese food for us all to sample.
In the afternoon our classes all buddied up with either a Primary or a Secondary class and joined together to have some food, served by the sixth form students, and helped each other to put their circles on our Chinese dragon display.
We also had an impromptu Dragon dance down our corridor with the fantastic dragon’s head which was made by Daniel’s family. We all had a brilliant time and enjoyed working together.
We carried on the theme into our staff meeting and began our meeting by having some Chinese food and a well earned sit down after a busy and very exciting day.
