Chinese Dragon Dance Workshop

On Monday 5th February, children at St Lawrence enjoyed a dragon dance workshop, arranged through Telford & Wrekin’s multicultural development team.

The children learnt about the importance and significance of a dragon, and the colour red, as well as enjoying some traditional music and taking part in the dance themselves.

One pupil commented on much heavier the dragon head was than they had imagined!

This work was part of the research children have been carrying out into Chinese New Year and the different ways people celebrate important festivals.
