Boys’ dragon dance to cel­e­brate

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

PUPILS at a school cel­e­brated Chi­nese New Year by per­form­ing a dragon dance in the play­ground.

Re­cep­tion boys at Thorpe House School in Ger­rards Cross did not let the fact that Chi­nese New Year fell dur­ing half term stop them from cel­e­brat­ing the oc­ca­sion.

Young­sters acted out the Chi­nese New Year story, fo­cus­ing on the char­ac­ters and set­ting.

They then worked to­gether to per­form the dragon dance.

Mrs Causer, a re­cep­tion teacher at the school, said: “The boys did a great job per­form­ing their dragon dance.

“They needed to be re­ally co-or­di­nated and stay to­gether to make the dragon look as au­then­tic as pos­si­ble which they did re­ally well.”
