Chinese New Year Celebrations 2023!
On Wednesday 18th January our school enjoyed special Lunar New Year themed lessons delivered by students from the Confucius Institute at the university of Nottingham. Years 3 and 4 put their fine motor skills to the test as they enjoyed Chinese paper cutting, whilst years 5 and 6 created beautiful Chinese calligraphy paintings. Thank you to all children for engaging well in lessons and representing our school proudly.
