May Day par­ties held at schools

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

YOUNG­STERS at two city schools dressed up, made merry and danced around the May­pole ahead of the May Day Bank Hol­i­day.

Pupils at Dogsthorpe In­fants School, in Cen­tral Av­enue, Dogsthorpe, dressed up ei­ther in their na­tional cos­tume or in gen­eral party clothes yes­ter­day to cel­e­brate May Day.

Those young­sters whose birth­days fell on or near May 1 made up the school’s May Day Pageant which fea­tured seven-year-old Scar­lett Free­man as the May Queen.

This cer­e­mony was fol­lowed by var­i­ous dance per­for­mances by the dif­fer­ent groups in­clud­ing the school’s Let’s Dance Club and coun­try danc­ing club.

Tina Gard­ner, the spe­cial events co­or­di­na­tor at the school, said: “They all re­ally en­joyed them­selves.

“It is a cheery start for the morn­ing de­spite the mis­er­able weather and there has been a cheer­ful at­mos­phere in the school to­day.”

Pupils at Wer­ring­ton Pri­mary School, in Am­ber­ley Slope, Wer­ring­ton, also held their May Day cel­e­bra­tions yes­ter­day which fea­tured the crown­ing of the May Queen and danc­ing around the May­pole.
