KS2 and Fph pupils had a tai chi session to celebrate the Year of the Pig for Chinese New Year. Mr. Deng brought in ancient brushes and ‘magic paper’ to teach us how to write some Chinese characters. Mr. Edwards taught us about Chinese New Year, how they celebrate and why. We loved learning about the traditions and watching the lion dance.
