Celebrating Chinese new year

2018 is the Year of the Dog and it was celebrated by all the pupils at The Hall. During the week the younger children took part in dance workshops performing routines with ribbons and chopsticks. They originate from Mongolia and the dances emphasize big movements of the arms and coordination with the wrists and shoulders. The steps match the movements of horses and bubbles with energy and excitement. The Key Stage Two children took part in calligraphy workshops. They learnt about the famous art form originating some 3000 years ago as pictures and how the characters are brushed in inks and highly regarded today. The Year One children ended the week with a special assembly for their friends and families. They re-told the story of the Chinese Years and sang the happy new year song, Gong Hey Fat Choy or 恭禧发财 . They presented special Happy New Year cards and lucky red envelopes to their families at the end of the assembly. As one parent said, "It's great to see all the children have so much fun in their learning."
