Chinese Dragon Dance

This week in Room 8 we were lucky enough to have the Chinese teacher in our school, Charlotte, come in to Room 8 to teach us the Dragon Dance and talk about China with us. We had a lot of fun playing instruments and getting under the dragon to do the Dragon dance, apparently the Dragon Dance is done at many festivals and celebrations to bring luck to everyone. The Dragon Dance is also done to bring the rain. Charlotte showed us some photos of special places in China such as The Great Wall of China and told us about what happens in Chinese schools.

Water Safety at the Aquatic Centre

We had a great time at the Aquatic Centre last week learning about water safety. Thanks so much to the parents who came with us to help. The teachers were very proud of all our Year One children as they showed their best manners and learning muscles and many children were brave to try the new experiences presented to them. We learned about using life jackets to keep ourselves safe around water, how to rescue people in trouble whilst making sure we stay safe, a range of ways to stay afloat in water and safe use of kayaks. Our instructors were cool and made it a lot of fun for us. Here we are enjoying ourselves at water safety:
